Lecturer in Classics, University of Maryland, College Park
The Department of Classics at the University of Maryland, College Park, invites applications for a one-semester, full-time, non-renewable position for Spring 2016 (January 25 – May 19). The position requires a PhD in Classics at the time of appointment.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach three courses during the semester: a four-credit course in Elementary Latin, a four-credit course in Intermediate Latin, as well as an advanced three-credit course in English translation, open to both undergraduates and graduate students, on a topic that complements our existing course offerings and research interests. Possibilities include classics and film, Roman religion, women in classical antiquity, or the later reception of Latin literary texts; the ability to offer this course in an online format is preferable but not essential. Research interests and publications in Latin literature and culture, and on classical reception, are desirable.
Please send a letter of interest, C.V., a list of the names and email addresses of three references whom we may contact, and a teaching portfolio including relevant syllabi and other evidence of excellence in teaching (such as sample assignments, teaching evaluations, or statements of teaching philosophy) to firstname.lastname@example.org. For best consideration, submit materials by October 15. Interviews will be held in person or via Skype. Inquiries should be directed to Prof. Lillian Doherty, email@example.com. Administrative approval of the position is contingent upon the continued availability of funds.
