Resident Instructor for 2024-2025, August through May, Rome, Italy. Candidates must have good knowledge of Ancient Rome and Italy, be interested in teaching undergraduates, and be willing 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 Resident Instructor is to participate in frequent, off-campus excursions and trips to historical, archeological and ancient cultural sites, and therefore the Resident Instructor 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 Resident Instructor resides at the Centro with the students enrolled in the program; background or previous experience with students in a similar environment should be noted in the application. Preference will be given to qualified applicants who have passed their doctoral qualifying examinations but are not planning to finish the dissertation during the ICCS teaching year.

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.

Letters detailing specific qualifications, a curriculum vitae, and (separately) two letters of recommendation, should be sent electronically ONLY to: Kayla Soltis-Katella, Assistant Director, Global Education Office for Undergraduates, Duke University. Phone: (919) 668-3483; Fax: (919) 684-3083; e-mail:

Candidates should submit all application materials to arrive on or before November 15, 2023. Virtual interviews will be scheduled for December 2023.
