The Department of Classics at Yale University wishes to hire a full-time tenured faculty member at the associate or full professor level in Latin literature beginning July 1, 2024. Research specialty is open. We are looking for a colleague who can help us with our teaching needs, contribute their energy and ideas to the Department’s academic life, and to the creative vision of the Humanities at Yale, while continuing to develop a bold research agenda. We seek a colleague preferably with a history of department and university service as well as tangible evidence of contribution to diversity in the field (e.g., in mentorship, teaching, outreach, and/or research). The teaching expectation is normally 4 courses per academic year, plus service to the program, including mentoring of graduate students and committee work. The focus of the courses would normally be Latin literature and Roman culture, understood most broadly, but candidates who can teach courses in partnership with colleagues across departments and programs (for example Humanities, Comparative Literature or Theater and Performance Studies) and develop new conversations across the Yale community (by contributing to the Translation Initiative, the Material Histories of the Human Record, or the Environmental Humanities) and beyond are particularly encouraged to apply.


The appointee must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have experience in teaching, service, mentorship, and research.
