Stipendiary Lectureship in Classical Languages and Literature

University of Oxford

Applications are invited for a Stipendiary Lectureship in Classical Languages and Literature, tenable for 18 months from 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2019. This post has been created to replace Dr Allan’s college duties during a fixed period of sabbatical leave and holding the University appointment of Assessor, and is non-renewable. 

The appointee will be required to provide eight hours of tutorials for the College per week, averaged over three eight-week terms, and to participate in the annual undergraduate admissions process, pastoral care of students and the administration of the subject in the college, including marking college examinations. The post-holder will also undertake a stint of up to sixteen hours of lectures per year for the Faculty of Classics. The post-holder may be asked if she or he wishes to undertake a modest amount of undergraduate examining and graduate teaching for the Faculty of Classics, for which additional remuneration will be offered.

We expect the appointee to cover the following subjects:

  • Homer, Iliad and Virgil, Aeneid (for Honour Moderations in Classics);
  • As many as possible of the following, within the Stipendiary Lecturer’s competence: Greek Core, Early Greek Hexameter Poetry, Greek Tragedy, Latin Core, Ovid, Latin Didactic (for Honour School of Literae Humaniores).

The stipend will be in the range £18,753 - £20,986 (depending on experience) plus a number of college benefits. The further particulars and application form can be downloaded from, where further details about University College and the courses offered are also available. 

The closing date for applications and the last date for receipt of references direct from referees is 12 noon (UK time) on Tuesday 31 October 2017

Interviews are expected to take place during the week commencing 20 November 2017.

Please note that this post would not entitle the successful applicant to apply for a Tier 2 UK Visa, and thus any applicant should ensure that they have the legal right to work in the UK for the period of the lectureship.

University College is an equal opportunities employer. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
