Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit

The mission of the Department of Classical Studies is to foster the intellectual development of undergraduate students, to engage with the local and broader community, and to promote the understanding of antiquity and its connections to the present, through inquiry and interpretation of the ancient Greco-Roman world.

Position Summary

The Department of Classical Studies invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Greek language, literature, and culture at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 1, 2020. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Classical Studies or a related field in hand by the time of appointment. The Department offers an undergraduate major with concentrations in archaeology, language & literature, and civilization. The ability to teach ancient Greek and Latin at all levels is required. We invite applicants with interests from across the range of ancient Greek language, literature, and culture who would expand and not significantly duplicate the department’s current strengths; applications would be particularly welcome from scholars with special expertise in drama, historiography, or ancient medicine. Strong commitment to scholarship and publication is necessary as well as evidence of excellent teaching. The standard teaching load is 3:3. All members of the department do some service for the College and University; service expectations are kept to a minimum in the first two years.
