Advanced Assistant Professor of Classics

The Classics Department at Colby College has been authorized to make a tenure-track appointment at the Advanced Assistant Professor level, beginning September 1, 2020. We invite applications from candidates capable of teaching with distinction courses in ancient Greek and Latin at all undergraduate levels, Greek and Roman history, as well as other courses in classical studies such as ancient medicine and/or science, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, digital humanities, environmental humanities, material culture, or reception studies. Research specialization may be in either Ancient History or Greek literature and culture. The successful candidate will be expected to develop research projects to which undergraduates can contribute, to participate in rethinking the content and pedagogy of the department’s undergraduate curriculum, and to assume a position of leadership in the Department at the earliest opportunity. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, advising, and/or service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the campus community.

Applicants should submit a cover letter that explains their interest in and qualifications for the position, a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a writing sample, a statement of  research interests, a teaching dossier (including course evaluations where possible and a statement of teaching philosophy documenting a commitment to the value of diversity, and experience with inclusive teaching) via Interfolio at the following link: https://apply.interfolio.com/69293

Course load is 4.5, i.e., 4 courses in the first year of employment and alternating between 5 and 4 in subsequent years.

N.B. We will not be interviewing candidates at the SCS/AIA Meetings in Washington, D.C.  Interviews will be conducted via Skype during the week of December 2-6. Applications received by November 1 will receive full consideration but review will continue until the position is filled. Address all inquiries to Kerill O’Neill, Search Committee Chair (knoneill@colby.edu).
