Cornell College, a private undergraduate liberal arts college, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in classical studies at the assistant professor level to begin in the fall of 2009. We seek a generalist, with some preference given to those with expertise in ancient history, archaeology, or comparative literature, who will work with other faculty to expand the classics curriculum and strengthen the role of the department in the overall intellectual life of the College. Teaching responsibilities include Greek and Latin language courses, a course that explores the multicultural world of the ancient Mediterranean, and topics courses in the area of the candidate's specialization. The successful candidate will have opportunities to participate in the College's Writing Program and/or First-Year Experience Program. Candidates should have the Ph.D. or be near completion of the degree. Cornell College has attracted national attention for its distinctive academic calendar under which faculty teach and students take one course at a time in month-long terms. The College is committed to excellence in teaching and encourages interdisciplinary interests among its faculty. Send paper copies of letter, vitae, graduate transcripts, statement of teaching and research interests, and three letters of reference to Ms. Ann Opatz, Assistant Dean, Office of Academic Affairs, Cornell College, 600 First Street SW, Mount Vernon, IA 52314-1098.
