The School of Histories and Humanities at Trinity College Dublin, seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor in Byzantine Studies, with a focus on Late Antique or Early Byzantine History, from September 2018. Based in the Department of Classics, this is a new post, made possible by the generous support of the A. G. Leventis Foundation. It is intended both to expand teaching provision and the scope of research in the Department of Classics, and to enhance links within the School by bridging the gap between existing strengths in Ancient and Early Medieval history and culture.
Applicants should have a research specialism in any aspect of Late Antique/Early Byzantine history or culture. The successful applicant will be expected to co-ordinate and teach undergraduate modules in Roman History, and to offer advanced undergraduate and postgraduate (MPhil) modules relating to their areas of research. They will also be expected to contribute to the School’s interdisciplinary undergraduate degree programme in Ancient and Medieval History and Culture. Willingness and ability to teach Latin and/or Greek to advanced level will be an advantage.
