The Department of Classical and Early Mediterranean Studies at Brandeis University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor specializing in ancient Greek history from a broad, comparative Mediterranean perspective, to begin in Fall 2024. This position is subject to budgetary approval. The successful candidate will teach survey courses and special topics in Greek history and the early Mediterranean world. An ability to teach Greek language and literature is desired, but not required. Research specialization is open, but preference will be given to candidates whose interests complement, but do not duplicate, those of the department faculty, and who demonstrate a commitment to interdisciplinary and inclusive teaching and scholarship.
The Department of Classical and Early Mediterranean Studies instructs undergraduates and administers the Ancient Greek and Roman Studies MA program. A well-rounded candidate will advise undergraduate majors at all levels of their studies, mentor seniors on independent projects covering various topics, and serve as an advisor and mentor to graduate students working on MA papers or theses. Our full-time teaching load is 4 courses per year (2 courses per semester). A Ph.D. in Ancient History, Classics, Classical Studies, Greek, or related fields is required.
