Tenure-Track Position in Classics
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Rhode Island, United States|
|Position:||Tenure Track Faculty|
The Department of History and Classics at Providence College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in Classics beginning in the fall of 2023. We especially welcome applications from candidates whose scholarship explores the culture and/or literature of the Late Republican or Early Imperial Roman Eras. The ability to teach undergraduate courses on Greek and Roman history and culture, as well as all levels of Greek and Latin, is required. Competence to teach in the Development of Western Civilization program, as part of the regular 3-3 teaching load, is also required. Experience in interdisciplinary and/or team-teaching is desirable. Ph.D. by date of appointment is required.
Providence College, a Roman Catholic, four-year, liberal arts institution conducted under the auspices of the Dominican Friars, seeks candidates who can affirm and contribute to its mission. Providence College believes that cultural and intellectual pluralism is essential to the excellence of its academic program, and strives to foster an academic culture and campus community that attracts and supports the development of a stellar and diverse faculty reflecting the global environment in which we live and work. As an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer, the College especially encourages applications from historically underrepresented groups.
Letter of application, a CV, three letters of recommendation, a writing sample, and a statement of teaching philosophy (including approach to inclusive pedagogy) should be submitted electronically to https://careers.providence.edu. Deadline for completed applications is Friday March 31, 2023. First-round interviews will be conducted remotely via videoconference (likely during the week of April 17th). Semi-finalists will be expected to submit 1-2 sample syllabi and a response to the mission statement at that time. Finalists will likely be invited for on-campus visits during the week of May 1.
