Assistant Professor of Classics: Early Greek poetry and/or Greek Drama
The Department of Classics at the University of Virginia is pleased to invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Classics. We welcome applications from candidates who work in early Greek poetry and/or Greek drama.
Candidates should have a PhD in Classics or a related field by the time of the appointment and demonstrate potential for excellence in both research and teaching. We aim to appoint a scholar whose research interests complement those of the current faculty. In addition to conducting research, supervising dissertations, and teaching graduate seminars, our new colleague will teach undergraduates at all levels in Greek, Latin, and Classical Civilization courses. They will also contribute to the running of the Department, as well as to the broader life of the University.
UVA Classics is part of a lively community of faculty who work across programs and departments in classical studies and beyond, including such departments as History, Religious Studies, Art, Philosophy, and the Karsh Institute for Democracy. The new colleague might strengthen and expand those links, and/or propose further collaborative opportunities with e.g. the departments of Drama, Politics, Women, Gender & Sexuality, or with another language and literature department.
