The Classics Department at Colorado College announces a one-year, non-tenure track Assistant Professor of Classics position to begin in August 2018.

Colorado College is a leading national liberal arts college with a distinctive academic calendar called the Block Plan, in which students take one course at a time. The teaching load for this position will consist of 5 courses (6 blocks), one of which will be a two-block introductory Latin course. The other courses will likely be taught in translation and be reflective of the needs of the department and the candidate’s research interests. The college supports active scholarship via travel to conferences and internal grant opportunities.

The department values both depth and breadth in the field. Applicants must be able to teach a wide range of courses across the department’s language, literature, history and cultural studies curriculum. We seek a candidate whose research interests complement those of permanent faculty; we are interested in applicants whose area of specialty is Roman History, especially with a military or environmental focus.

The College is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community. Further, Colorado College is dedicated to the development of faculty and staff who are committed to inclusive practices in teaching, learning, and working. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply.

Review of applications will begin on February 15, 2018; we will continue to consider applications until the position is filled. A successful candidate must exhibit the potential for excellence in teaching and for contributing to the department’s scholarly activities.

Colorado College is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the diversity of its community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation in our educational programs and activities or our employment practices.
