The University of California at Santa Barbara is delighted to offer a new funding opportunity: 5 years of full funding for a Classics PhD student who is able to teach modern Greek. The successful applicant will be expected to teach modern Greek to undergraduates for two quarters each year, and will be on fellowship for the third quarter. Greek-speaking applicants from Greece, the US, and other countries are encouraged to apply.
Who may apply?
Students who wish to pursue a PhD in Classics and who have a BA in Classics or a comparable degree and who have a minimum of 2 years training in both Latin and ancient Greek. Applicants must be a good fit for our department and bilingual in modern Greek and English. Applicants should have an aptitude for teaching, but no teaching experience is necessary as training will be given.
For more information about this and our other fellowships please contact the Chair of the Classics department, Professor Helen Morales.
