INTERCOLLEGIATE CENTER FOR CLASSICAL STUDIES IN ROME, “THE CENTRO”
Resident Instructor for 2023-2024, August through May, Rome, Italy. Candidates must have good knowledge of Ancient Rome and Italy, be interested in teaching undergraduates, and be willing to participate in a team-taught course, led by 23-24 Professor-in-Charge Anthony Corbeill, that combines archaeology, history, topography, literature, and epigraphy. They also must be able to teach either intermediate or advanced-level Greek or intermediate or advanced-level Latin. The Centro plans to undertake two trips to the Bay of Naples and one trip to Sicily per academic term; if appropriate, applicants should note their experience in those regions. An essential function of the Resident Instructor is to participate in frequent, off-campus excursions and trips to historical, archeological and ancient cultural sites, and therefore the Resident Instructor must be able to traverse various types of terrain, including steep slopes and uneven ground, for significant distances, in addition to safely leading students through public transportation systems. The Resident Instructor resides at the Centro with the students enrolled in the program; background or previous experience with students in a similar environment should be noted in the application. Preference will be given to qualified applicants who have passed their doctoral qualifying examinations but are not planning to finish the dissertation during the ICCS teaching year.
Letters detailing specific qualifications, a curriculum vitae, and (separately) two letters of recommendation, should be sent electronically ONLY to: Susan E. Pratt, Assistant Director, Global Education Office for Undergraduates, Duke University. Phone: (919) 668-3483; Fax: (919) 684-3083; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Candidates should submit all application materials to arrive on or before September 23, 2022. Virtual interviews will be scheduled for November/December 2022. The Intercollegiate Center is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and actively encourages applications from women and members of minority groups.
