The School of Historical and Philosophical Studies (SHAPS) at the University of Melbourne in Australia is advertising a continuing position for a Lecturer B in Classical Greek Archaeology, ideally to commence in January 2020. Online applications are due Sunday, May 26, 2019 (Australian time). The job listing (with a link to instructions on how to apply) is at URL 


If the link is broken, do a search through [jobs.unimelb.edu.au]. 'Lecturer B' is the Australian equivalent of a North American assistant professor, and 'continuing' is the Australian equivalent of 'tenure-track'.

Applicants should have a completed PhD in a relevant area of archaeology, or related field (e.g. Classics or Art History); a strong record in research in Classical Greek archaeology (which can include Hellenistic) and scholarly publication in leading peer-reviewed journals, with a developing publication profile; and expertise in archaeological fieldwork practice, including active fieldwork projects that can accommodate students.

This is a continuing (i.e. tenure-track) Teaching & Research position, the duties of which will include: the coordination and teaching of at least 3 undergraduate courses per year; a sustained research profile which aims to publish a minimum average of 1.5 publication points per year (e.g. a refereed journal article or research book chapter counts for 1 point), and to apply for competitive research grant funding at least 2 times every 5 years; supervision of theses by M.A., PhD, and 4th-year Honours students to completion; and a variety of engagement activities and School leadership roles. As for teaching, the successful candidate will initially teach the courses "Practical Archaeology," "Archaeology of the Classical Greek World," and "The Age of Alexander the Great."

Questions about the position should be directed to Prof Louise Hitchcock [l.hitchcock@unimelb.edu.au], although applications should not be sent to her.
