Faculty Fellow Position in Classics
The Department of Classics at Colby College has been authorized to seek a Faculty Fellow in Classics for a one-year position, to begin September 1, 2019. Completed PhD preferred. The teaching load is two courses per semester. The successful candidate will join an energetic department committed to: providing the best education possible to talented undergraduates at an increasingly diverse college; exploring the opportunity to re-imagine itself in the wake of two retirements; raising the profile of our discipline on campus.

The most desirable candidate will have a secondary expertise such as rhetoric, digital humanities, experiential learning, the reception of antiquity, ancient athletics, or classical archaeology.
