Lecturer in Classical Studies (Research, Training and Partnerships)
The Institute of Classical Studies is now recruiting for a two-year lectureship in Classical Studies in support of its national mission. The postholder, who will be an active researcher with a PhD in Classical Studies or a related discipline, will be supported to develop their own research agenda, but will also be responsible for developing and extending the ICS’s existing researcher training programme, working with key partners in the School such as the Doctoral Centre and developing new national and international collaborations with appropriate external partners, including UK classical departments, other institutions such as the British Institutional Research Institutes and the GLAM sector.
The postholder will be located in the Institute of Classical Studies and will report to the ICS Director, Professor Katherine Harloe. The post will offer opportunities for interdisciplinary engagement and networking across the School of Advanced Study’s eight institutes and two specialist hubs, and the postholder will also work with and be supported by the School of Advanced Study’s Doctoral Centre. As a member of academic staff in the UK’s national centre for the promotion and facilitation of research in the humanities, the postholder will have access an unparalleled network of collaborations and opportunities for professional development. Mentoring will be offered, along with support for achieving Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (if the successful candidate does not already hold such fellowship) and further professional training through the School of Advanced Study’s Organisational and Staff Development.
This post is a fixed-term, career development role intended to provide an opportunity for someone of postdoctoral status to develop their research activities, networks, leadership skills and understanding of the UK and international research landscape to enhance their suitability for longer-term research and/or research engagement role inside or outside of higher education institutions.
Interviews will be held on 19-20 January 2023.
