The Department of Classical Studies invites applications for a three-year Visiting Assistant Professor, specializing in Greek literature, preferably poetry. We welcome additional interests in areas such as other oral traditions, dramatic performance, and ancient philosophy. Ph.D. is required by the time of appointment (July 1, 2013); teaching experience is a plus.
Candidates must be able to teach both Latin and Greek language and literature from the elementary to the advanced level (the latter courses include both undergraduate and M.A. students). The normal teaching load is six courses per year. We seek candidates with broad intellectual interests that will foster cooperation with other departments and the creation of innovative courses in the area of ancient civilization. Readiness to teach a large lecture course such as Greek civilization is desirable.
Applications should include (1) a cover letter, describing both your research interests and at least one innovative course in the area of ancient civilization that you have taught or hope to teach; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) three letters of recommendation; and (4) a brief writing sample. Send applications to Mary Crane, Chair, Department of Classical Studies, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467. All materials must be received, in hard copy, by November 16, 2012. Interviews will be conducted at the annual meeting of the American Philological Association in Seattle, January 3-6, 2013.
