The Department of History and the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University jointly invite applications for the position of Assistant Professor (tenure-track), Associate Professor (with tenure), or Professor (with tenure) in Byzantine history. We are especially interested in candidates whose work connects Byzantium to other areas, either geographically, through connections to the Islamic world, the Silk Road (i.e., Caucasus and Central Asia), or Slavic societies; or methodologically, including (but not limited to) environmental history, the study of material culture, or the history of science. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching and research mission of the Department and the Seeger Center and participate in the intellectual life of the Hellenic Studies academic community at Princeton. The candidate should be prepared to offer undergraduate lecture courses, as well as upper-level undergraduate courses and graduate seminars. Review of files will begin on October 15, 2023 and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a brief statement (maximum 2 pages) of research interests. At least three names of referees should be entered into the online system. Reference letters and samples of written work will be solicited by the search committee for candidates of interest. For candidates who do not yet have a Ph.D., the recommendation of the principal advisor must include precise information on the present status of the dissertation and the likelihood of completion by summer 2024. Anticipated start date, September 1, 2024.
We seek faculty members who will create a climate that embraces excellence and diversity, with a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring that will enhance the work of the Department and the Seeger Center, participate in Hellenic Studies activities on campus and at the Princeton Athens Center, and attract and retain a diverse student body. Applicants are welcome to include a brief description of how they would contribute to this goal in their cover letter. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
