The Department of Classics at The Florida State University will make a new appointment for the academic year commencing in August 1999. The position is OPEN RANK: applications will be accepted for assistant professor (tenure-track), associate professor and professor. The salary will be negotiable and will be commensurate with an applicant's experience and standing. Classics at FSU is, with this appointment, a department of ten faculty who teach courses at every level from introductory to graduate (the Department offers the MA and PhD, and there is a vigorous community of approximately 30 graduate students in residence). The normal teaching load is four courses per year, one of which should be an undergraduate course with broad appeal to non-majors. Departmental research strengths lie in archaeology and history; departmental research needs lie in the areas of Greek and Latin poetry. In making this appointment, the Department will seek to find the individual who is best able to advance its mission in teaching and in research. Consequently, the Department is as willing to bolster its existing strengths as it is to correct its current deficiencies, though, if an appointment is made at the assistant professor level, there will very likely be a preference for someone working in the areas of Greek or Latin poetry. Applicants at the level of assistant professor should send the usual dossier, including letters of recommendation and a writing sample (a dissertation chapter or an article). Applicants at the remaining levels need send only a letter of inquiry and a current c.v. If further particulars are required, they will be requested. All applications will be handled with discretion and with dispatch. All applications must be postmarked by December 8th. Applications should be directed to Jeff Tatum, Department of Classics, Dodd Hall, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL 32306-1510. FSU is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from women and minorities.
