WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY – WINSTON-SALEM, NC (Two Positions)
The Department of Classical Languages at Wake Forest University invites applications for two (2) tenure-track positions to begin in the fall semester 2011, both at the rank of Assistant Professor. Wake Forest is seeking general classicists with a strong commitment to undergraduate education in the liberal arts tradition. Candidates should be prepared (and eager) to teach Greek and Latin at all levels as well as courses with readings in translation. These teaching responsibilities will be central. But, in accordance with the University’s teacher-scholar model, candidates should also have a commitment to scholarship and a specific research agenda; ideally teaching and scholarship would be mutually reinforcing. Area of specialization is open but preference will be given to Latin language and literature for both positions. Evidence of excellence in teaching is highly desirable. Applications will be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled, with review to begin on November 15, 2010. We expect to conduct interviews at the APA meeting in January 2011.
