The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Delaware invites applications for a one-year supplemental faculty position without review to teach 6 (3 fall, 3 spring) in-person Latin courses at the 100 and 200 levels in the 2023–2024 academic year. A supplemental faculty member is equivalent to what is called an ‘adjunct’ role at many institutions. These are part-time, non-benefited positions. We will begin reviewing applications on Friday, May 5th. The position will remain open until filled.

The Ancient Greek and Roman Studies program in the Department teaches Latin, ancient Greek, and a wide range of courses in translation, to majors and minors, to other classical language learners, and to a large and diverse general student audience. We are a vibrant and growing program committed to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum, and to promoting an environment of equality and inclusion.

Information on the Ancient Greek and Roman Studies program is available here:

The University of Delaware’s main campus in Newark is conveniently located near Philadelphia and Baltimore. Although a non-benefited position, supplemental faculty members enjoy some employment perks, such as full access to the library and employee gym, an office space within the department, and a collegial environment. DLLC supplemental faculty members are invited to department meetings and social events, and contribute to the intellectual life of the department.


The successful applicant (a) will be able to teach at least Latin but preferably also ancient Greek excellently, at least up to the advanced undergraduate level; and (b) will be ready to contribute classes with readings in English (‘LLCU’ courses in our catalog). Our instructors must demonstrate a dedication to pedagogical innovation and engagement, along with a mastery of the field of study. Instructors committed to helping expand our program by attracting and retaining students are also highly desirable.

Pay Rate Range

At least $5259 per 3-credit course taught in fall and spring semesters for those with a Master’s degree, or at least $5940 per 3-credit course taught for those who hold a PhD.

Minimum Qualifications

The successful applicant will have at least a Master’s degree or equivalent in Classics or a closely related field.

Preferred Qualifications

We prefer a candidate who will have earned a PhD in Classics or a closely related field by Fall 2023. Demonstrated ability to teach Latin and/or ancient Greek is also preferred.
