The Classics Department at Colorado College invites applications for a full-time one-year Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics. Colorado College, a liberal arts institution that prizes innovative and student-focused teaching, operates on the Block Plan, where students take only one class at a time for three and a half weeks and there are four such “blocks” per semester. The department is enthusiastically committed to diverse perspectives and inclusive and equitable practices and policies in support of the college’s antiracism commitment. The successful candidate will teach three blocks each semester. These will include at least two blocks in the college’s First-Year Program (CC120 First-Year Writing Seminar) on topics of their choice, and courses on at least two of the following topics in the ancient Mediterranean: archaeology, cultural heritage management, environment and sustainability, gender and sexuality, magic, medicine, or daily life. We are especially interested in candidates with proven success in teaching college writing and the ability to teach upper-level courses in Latin or Greek. PhD in Classics or a related field by start of appointment is required. Review of applications will begin on May 5, and the position will remain open until filled.
Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae and a cover letter, in which they describe at least three courses that they would teach, including a CC120 First-Year Writing Seminar, and how their teaching contributes to the college’s antiracism commitment. They should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted on their behalf.
