The Department of Greek and Roman Studies invites applications for a tenure-track position in Latin language and literature. The appointment will be made at the rank of Assistant Professor, but is open to both entry level and more experienced candidates. The Ph.D. is required. Applicants should be demonstrably active in research and publication, and should be willing to teach Latin at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum, to offer innovative courses in translation, and to supervise MA students concentrating on Latin literature. Applications from candidates who take a socio-cultural or interdisciplinary approach to literature will be particularly welcome. Preference may be given to candidates with special interests in one or more of the following areas: rhetorical and/or philosophical prose; comedy; lyric poetry. But anyone interested in the general description of the position is encouraged to apply. The appointment will commence on 1 July 1999.
