The Department of Classics at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Greek Language and Literature. The appointment will begin in August 2006. The successful candidate will be able to teach a broad range of courses in Greek, Latin, and classical civilization, and will have research interests in a major field of Greek literature such as Homeric studies or Greek drama. A further interest in Greek religion is desirable. The Department seeks a candidate prepared to contribute to a rapidly expanding set of classical programs. Completion of the PhD is required. In exceptional circumstances a second appointment may be made. In this case a candidate's research interests will lie in classical Greek prose literature, and a further interest in classical Greek history is desirable.

Candidates should send a letter of application and appropriate supporting documents to Keith Bradley, Chair, Department of Classics, 304 O'Shaughnessy Hall, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN 46556, USA. Applications should be received by November 15, 2005. Candidates who applied last spring for the 2005-06 one-year position may indicate if they wish to renew their applications. Preliminary interviews will be held at the Annual Meeting of the American Philological Association in Montreal (January 2006).
