The Department of History at North Carolina State University invites applicants for a tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in the history of the Ancient Mediterranean World, beginning August 2024. We seek to identify a candidate who has strong promise as a scholar and teacher and whose research engages with the period from c. 1000 BCE to 600 CE. Candidates who can contribute to our departmental strengths in digital humanities and public history and ongoing departmental conversations about topics of contemporary historical concern – for example, race, ethnic & religious identities, gender, sexuality, slavery, social justice, empire, colonialism, migration, and global connections – are particularly encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will teach an introductory survey course on the Ancient Mediterranean World, propose and teach upper-level courses in their areas of expertise, and share in the teaching of core courses in the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. The successful candidate may supervise undergraduate honors and MA theses in the history of ancient Greece, Rome, and other areas of the Ancient Mediterranean World. They may also work with MA and PhD students in the department’s Public History program.

The successful candidate will join a History Department whose faculty share a deep commitment, not only to outstanding scholarship, but also to rigorous, innovative classroom instruction and public-facing projects. All faculty engage in teaching, research, and service.
