Lecturer in Classics or Ancient History

Durham University - Department of Classics and Ancient History

The Department of Classics and Ancient History seeks to appoint an outstanding candidate at Lecturer (Assistant Professor) level. We welcome applications from exceptional scholars with research and teaching interests in any sub-field of Classics. Applications from specialists in ancient philosophy or the material culture of the ancient world are particularly encouraged.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of the Department’s research and teaching. The successful candidate will be part of a significant programme of expansion and investment in the Department. We are currently advertising four permanent positions in Classics, this one included.

For this lectureship we are keen to invite applications from individuals at any stage of their academic career. Candidates in the early stages of their career should have a completed doctorate (or have a doctorate under examination) and be able to demonstrate the capacity for international-level research achievement. More experienced candidates will be expected to have a more significant publication record.

Successful applicants will, ideally, be in post by 1 September 2017.

Interviews are anticipated to take place in early 2017.

We embrace excellence in all its forms and invite all qualified candidates to apply. We particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in the University.
