Tenure-track Assistant Professor

Nashville, TN

Open Date:  Oct 5, 2017

Close Date:  Nov 15, 2017

The Program in Classical and Mediterranean Studies invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position starting fall 2018.

We seek an outstanding researcher and teacher of the ancient Greek world broadly defined. We welcome applications from scholars in related fields (history, material culture, language and literature, philosophy, religion) whose work interrogates or challenges traditional disciplinary boundaries. Competitive candidates are expected to be able to contribute across the curriculum by teaching Greek at all levels as well as courses in Mediterranean Studies and by developing courses in their own area of specialization. The successful candidate will enhance the growing, energetic community of a new program dedicated to studying and teaching the ancient world in comparative perspective across cultures, regions, and periods (https://as.vanderbilt.edu/classics/).

Qualifications: Ph.D. in hand by August 16, 2018, teaching experience, and evidence of professional achievement. Dossiers should include a cover letter that addresses research interests, scholarship, and teaching; a curriculum vitae; three letters of recommendation; and a writing sample (dissertation chapter, published paper, conference presentation) no more than 20 pages. Candidates should submit materials to http://apply.interfolio.com/45661 no later than November 15, 2017.

Vanderbilt University has a strong institutional commitment to recruiting and retaining an academically and culturally diverse community of faculty. Minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and members of other underrepresented groups, in particular, are encouraged to apply. Vanderbilt is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
