The Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University invites applications for a Lecturer position in the art and archaeology of the ancient Near East or Egypt for the 2024-2025 academic year. The position is expected to be full-time, contingent on enrollments, with the possibility of a one-year renewal. The position is anticipated to begin September 1, 2024.
