The Department of Classics at King’s College London seeks to appoint a lecturer specialising in Greek art history. Applications are sought from candidates with recognised expertise in the visual and material culture of the mid-first millennium BCE in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean. Evidence of engagement with the wider Afro-Eurasian context of Classical Greek art and its later reception would be an advantage, fitting with the department’s commitment to a broader approach to the past via our new BA in Classics and the Ancient World.
You will teach on our first-year survey module, ‘The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Greece and Rome’, and develop new modules in your area of specialism for second- and third-year undergraduates as well as for our masters programmes. You will contribute to the planning, organisation and delivery of other teaching activities at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including fieldtrips to Classical lands as part of the Jamie Rumble Travel Fund. You will assume pastoral and administrative responsibilities, have excellent interpersonal skills and a collaborative ethos, participating actively in the life and culture of the department. You will conduct and publish high-quality research in the art of the mid-first millennium BCE, seek external research funding and engage in impact-generating activities.
The department is one of the largest, most prestigious and innovative centres for the study of antiquity in the UK. Our scholarship encompasses all aspects of the Graeco-Roman world, including reception and legacy. In REF2021 the department was ranked first equal on the grade point average of our overall quality profile, and, in the recent QS World University Rankings 2022, came 12th globally and 3rd in the UK.
We are committed to a more diverse and inclusive discipline and particularly encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented in the department. All applications from members of groups with protected characteristics that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the Equality Act are welcomed.
