Associate Professor/Assistant Professor for 2024-2025 (2 positions), August through May, Rome, Italy. Candidates must have good knowledge of Ancient Rome and Italy, be interested in teaching undergraduates, and be eager to participate in a team-taught course, led by 24-25 Professor-in-Charge Sonia Sabnis, that combines archaeology, history, topography, literature, and epigraphy. They also must be able to teach either intermediate or advanced-level Greek or intermediate or advanced-level Latin. The Centro plans to undertake two trips to the Bay of Naples and one trip to Croatia and Northeastern Italy per academic term; if appropriate, applicants should note their experience in those regions. An essential function of the Assistant and Associate Professors is to participate in frequent, off-campus excursions and trips to historical, archeological and ancient cultural sites, and therefore faculty members must be able to traverse various types of terrain, including steep slopes and uneven ground, for significant distances, in addition to safely leading students through public transportation systems. The Managing Committee is especially interested in candidates with established careers for appointment to advanced assistant or associate rank; we normally appoint one assistant/associate professor whose interests and experience are primarily in material/visual culture and one whose interests and experience are primarily textual; and we especially value candidates with teaching competence in both areas.

The Intercollegiate Center does not provide H-1B or other immigration case sponsorship. Those hired must already be legally able to work for an American organization.
