The Classical Studies Program at Bard College invites applications for its newly-established academic diversity postdoctoral fellowship. Applicants for this position may specialize in any aspect of the literature, material culture, or history of Greece, Rome, or the wider Mediterranean world. They should also be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and to participating in the intellectual life of a small Liberal Arts College. Eligible candidates will have received the PhD in the past three years, or may still be ABD, with a clear pathway to completion, at the time they take up the fellowship. 

The purpose of the fellowship is to help advance the academic careers of promising early-stage teacher-scholars while increasing the diversity and enriching the intellectual vitality of our small, interdisciplinary Program and of the wider Bard College community. We are especially interested in receiving applications from individuals who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the professoriate (including, but not limited to, Black, African American, Asian American, Native American, Indigenous, or Latinx candidates), and/or individuals whose experience, teaching, or research will contribute to diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity in the field of Classical Studies. 

The fellowship is for a period of two years, beginning July 1, 2021. The teaching load is 1-1. The fellowship comes with a full-time salary, health benefits, and research funds of $2,000 per year, as well as additional funds and institutional support to organize an academic conference at Bard during the term of the fellowship. The Fellow will be provided with office space, a computer, and library access.  

The Classical Studies Program at Bard College comprises four full-time faculty members, as well as affiliated members in other academic programs. For more about our Program, please visit: https://classicalstudies.bard.edu.  

Candidates should send the following application materials by Interfolio http://apply.interfolio.com/80574:  curriculum vitae; letter of application that outlines research plans for the fellowship term as well as the candidate’s interests in and approach to undergraduate teaching; the names and contact information of three recommenders; and a personal statement of their demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence in Classical Studies (1-3 pages). Further materials, such as a sample of scholarly work and sample syllabi, may be solicited at a later point. Review of applications will begin on December 15 and will continue until the position is filled. For questions about the position, please email Lauren Curtis, Associate Professor of Classical Studies (lcurtis@bard.edu).

Bard College is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications from those who contribute to our diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, mental, or physical disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, familial status, veteran status, or genetic information.
