The Department of History and Classics at Providence College invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professorship in Ancient Roman History beginning in the fall of 2023. (n.b.: This position serves to cover scheduled faculty leaves and is in addition to our separately advertised tenure-track position in Classics. There is the possibility of renewal for one additional year, contingent on staffing needs.) The ability to teach undergraduate survey courses on Roman history, other courses in ancient history and culture, as well as Latin at the undergraduate level, is required. Competence to teach in the Development of Western Civilization program, as part of the regular 3-3 teaching load, is also required. Experience in interdisciplinary and/or team-teaching is desirable. Ph.D. by date of appointment is required.
Providence College, a Roman Catholic, four-year, liberal arts institution conducted under the auspices of the Dominican Friars, seeks candidates who can affirm and contribute to its mission. Providence College believes that cultural and intellectual pluralism is essential to the excellence of its academic program, and strives to foster an academic culture and campus community that attracts and supports the development of a stellar and diverse faculty reflecting the global environment in which we live and work. As an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer, the College especially encourages applications from historically underrepresented groups.
Letter of application, a CV, three letters of recommendation, and a statement of teaching philosophy (including approach to inclusive pedagogy) should be submitted electronically to https://careers.providence.edu. Deadline for completed applications is Monday, April 24, 2023. (Applicants who have already submitted a dossier for the tenure-track position need not send a separate dossier. Just send an email to <history2[at]providence.edu> indicating your interest in being additionally considered for the VAP position.) First-round interviews will be conducted remotely via videoconference (likely during the week of May 8th). Semi-finalists will be expected to submit 1-2 sample syllabi and a response to the mission statement at that time. Finalists will be asked to teach a sample lecture and interview with the department by zoom, likely during the week of May 22nd.
Questions about the position may be addressed to Dr. Sharon Murphy, chair of the department of History and Classics at <sharon.murphy[at]providence.edu>.
