The Department of Classics at Georgetown University invites applications for a tenure-track position in the social history of the ancient Mediterranean to begin August 1, 2023. For the first year of this position, the successful candidate will also hold the title of Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellow, and will have no teaching and service responsibilities to allow a focus on research while receiving mentorship and support from two senior faculty members. After the first fellowship year, the teaching load is two courses per semester. The candidate is expected to teach courses on the ancient Mediterranean world in translation and should demonstrate a strong record of research as well as a commitment to collaborating with colleagues and mentoring undergraduate and postbaccalaureate students.

The Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellowship program is designed to bring in a cohort of new faculty from a wide range of backgrounds who demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Provost’s Distinguished Fellows are on the tenure track and will be exempt from teaching and service duties in the first year of their appointments, and will devote their full-time effort to building their research program. Fellows will be assigned senior faculty mentors by their home departments.
