Lecturer in Ancient History

University of Edinburgh - Classics

College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology is seeking to appoint an outstanding scholar to a Lectureship in Ancient History, with a focus on Greek history. The successful candidate will have a strong track record of internationally excellent publications, proportionate to career stage, and clear evidence of their potential for future development at the highest level. S/he will also be expected to make a significant contribution to the teaching of ancient history at undergraduate level, as well as at postgraduate level, especially in the context of the Master’s programme in Ancient History. Additional research and teaching interests in the history of other peoples with whom the Greeks came into contact (including the Romans) and/or in material culture would be an asset.

Closing date 5pm (GMT) on Tuesday 7th November 2017 with a starting date of 3rd September 2018
