The Department of Classics at Union College invites applications for a three-year appointment at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor that will begin in September 2016. The area of specialization is open, but we look for evidence of a strong interest in making interdisciplinary contributions to the curriculum (examples include, but are not limited to, ancient technology, art, archaeology, science, women and gender studies, religion). Teaching competencies must include Greek and Latin at all undergraduate levels as well as general courses in translation. We also look for evidence of an active research program. Union employs a trimester system, and the normal teaching load is two courses per term.
Increasing diversity on campus is a critical priority for Union, one that is integral to our mission of preparing students for a globally interconnected world. Our goal is not only to increase diversity, but to support a diverse environment in which people from varied backgrounds can succeed and thrive. In your cover letter, in addition to describing your research and teaching interests, please also convey how your teaching and scholarship might support Union’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

We anticipate conducting first-round interviews via Skype in mid-late January. Questions may be directed to Stacie Raucci (email@example.com), Chair, Department of Classics.
