About the role

The Faculty of Classics is recruiting an Associate Professor of Classical Reception and Director of the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (APGRD). The post is available from 1 October 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointee will be employed by the Faculty of Classics and will hold a Supernumerary Fellowship at St Hilda’s College.

The Associate Professor role is an intrinsic part of the post and is fundamental to sustaining the Faculty’s ability to attract and teach undergraduate students, as well as graduate students looking to explore new methodologies of the literary humanities, and to engage in critical and reflective thinking about Classics as a discipline as a central part of their degree programme.

The role of the Director of the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (APGRD) has been instrumental in facilitating dialogue between Classics and other academic fields (comparative literature, archival science, translation studies, trauma studies, queer studies, performance studies, media theory, dance and music), as well as in opening Classics to new academic and non-academic audiences. The directorship is therefore vital to maintaining the Classics Faculty’s current position as a recognized centre of excellence at the interface between cross-disciplinary academic research and the creative arts.

About you

The successful candidate will be an outstanding researcher and teacher in Classical Reception, and be able to maintain Oxford’s current position as the leading centre in the UK for the study of Classical Reception. This post is split 50/50 between teaching/research and administrative and leadership responsibilities as Director of the APGRD.
