The Department of Classics, Humanities & Italian Studies in the College of Liberal Arts invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Classics at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August, 2023. The course load is 2/2. Candidates must be able to teach Greek and Latin at all levels, as well as contribute as a generalist across the program’s curriculum, which includes both traditional and innovative courses in ancient literature and culture. The area of research specialization is open, although we are particularly interested in candidates whose research and teaching will leverage our existing strengths or contribute to new strategic initiatives in the department and college. Such areas may include: ancient political thought in theory and practice, with emphasis on responsible governance and sustainable institutions; race, gender, and ethnic studies (and related topics such as migration, identity, disability, marginalized groups); and ancient religion, folklore and myth.

Our department, like the University of New Hampshire as a whole, is committed to enhancing and sustaining an educational community that is inclusive, diverse, and equitable, and cherishes these values as being inextricably linked to our core mission. The successful candidate will join a vibrant, interdisciplinary department that, through its teaching and research, seeks to reimagine the traditional scholarly approaches to the ancient world, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance, and will help develop the program’s vision for extending the Classics beyond the traditional sub-disciplines and beyond the usual ambit of Greece and Italy.
