Job Description:

The Department of Middle Eastern and Ancient Mediterranean Studies at Binghamton University (SUNY) invites applications for the position of Lecturer in Latin and ancient Greek. This is a full-time position (two-year contract) with possible renewal. The effective appointment date is 1 September, 2024. The official academic year obligation for 2024-2025 begins on 19 August, 2024. The teaching load is three course sections per semester, with a focus on Latin and ancient Greek language teaching at the beginner and intermediate levels, and with the option to teach classes with readings in English online during the winter and summer interterms for additional compensation. Teaching responsibilities may also include an introductory course in ancient Greek, Roman, or Mediterranean culture with readings in English.

Applicants specializing in Latin and/or ancient Greek philology should have the PhD in hand by the beginning of the appointment (1 September, 2024). We seek candidates who have experience teaching Latin and ancient Greek at the college/university level. Candidates who are experienced with technologies in language teaching, online teaching, and teaching a diverse student body are desirable.

The Department of Middle Eastern and Ancient Mediterranean Studies is committed to equity and inclusion and is actively working to increase diversity among its faculty and create an environment that is welcoming to all. We hope members of groups historically underrepresented in the field of ancient Mediterranean Studies will apply.

Working at Binghamton University

Message on working at Binghamton University from President Harvey Stenger    


Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946, to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II. Originally located in Endicott, N.Y., five miles west of the present campus, the fledgling school was a branch of Syracuse University.

Four years later, the college was incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) and renamed Harpur College in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher, patriot and pioneer who helped settle the area west of Binghamton.

In 1961, the campus moved across the Susquehanna River to Vestal. Growing enrollment and a reputation for excellence soon led to the selection of Harpur College as one of four doctorate-granting University Centers in the SUNY system.

In 1965, the campus was formally designated the State University of New York at Binghamton, and in 1992, Binghamton University was adopted as our informal name.

Mission Statement
