The Department of Classical Studies invites applications for a one-year, full-time, visiting appointment in Greek Archaeology at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin in July 2022. We are particularly interested in candidates whose courses also will be of interest to students in our Archaeology Program. The ideal candidate will blend innovative teaching with rigorous methodological approaches and the application of new technologies to the interpretation of objects, texts, and sites. The teaching load is five courses for the academic year. These courses will include a survey of Greek archaeology and art; a seminar designed for first year students on a topic of the candidate’s choice; a seminar in the candidate’s research specialty; first semester Greek; and an intermediate or advanced level Greek course TBD. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Classics, Classical Archaeology, or a related field in hand by the time of appointment to be hired as an Assistant Professor; a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, but will complete the Ph.D. in Classics, Classical Archaeology, or a related field within one year of hire. Applications should be addressed to Professor Christopher Parslow, Chair, at Careers at Wesleyan

A complete application will include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a research statement, a teaching statement describing how they will embrace the college’s commitment to fostering an inclusive community, and the email addresses of three referees from whom we may obtain confidential letters of recommendation. Applicants invited for a Zoom interview will be asked to provide a writing sample (dissertation chapter, research publication, conference presentation, etc.) of no more than 25 pages. For applicants who are not US citizens or permanent residents, a visa that allows employment in the United States is required by September 1, 2022. Visa sponsorship is not available.

Applications completed by March 15, 2022 will receive full consideration.
