The Department of History and the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University jointly invite applications for the position of Assistant Professor (tenure-track), Associate Professor (with tenure), or Professor (with tenure) in Byzantine history. We are especially interested in candidates whose work connects Byzantium to other areas, either geographically, through connections to the Islamic world, the Silk Road (i.e., Caucasus and Central Asia), or Slavic societies; or methodologically, including (but not limited to) environmental history, the study of material culture, or the history of science. 

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching and research mission of the Department and the Seeger Center and participate in the intellectual life of the Hellenic Studies academic community at Princeton. The candidate should be prepared to offer undergraduate lecture courses, as well as upper-level undergraduate courses and graduate seminars.  

We seek faculty members who will create a climate that embraces excellence and diversity, with a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring that will enhance the work of the Department and the Seeger Center, participate in Hellenic Studies activities on campus and at the Princeton Athens Center, and attract and retain a diverse student body.
