Applications are invited for the above post based in the Department of Classics of the School of Humanities at the University of Nottingham. The post has become vacant due to the imminent retirement of Professor Alan Sommerstein after forty years at Nottingham, and the Department is keen to appoint a lecturer who will uphold and enhance its international reputation for ancient Greek studies.

Duties will include designing and teaching modules for postgraduate and undergraduate students, including modules in ancient Greek (and ideally Latin) language at beginners, intermediate, and advanced levels. They will be prepared to contribute to the lectures, seminar teaching and assessment of the first year undergraduate module ‘Interpreting Ancient Literature’, and to the seminar teaching and assessment of optional modules for second and third year undergraduates, including special subjects and dissertations. The appointee will also be expected to attract and supervise research students.

The successful candidate will be an excellent scholar, with a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area, and a publication record commensurate with their experience. The person appointed will be actively engaged in research of an internationally recognised standard in ancient Greek literature which has the potential to produce excellent publications and to attract external funding. They will also be required to participate in the administration of the Department; and will be committed to the success of the Department in other ways, such as by engaging in outreach activities and giving research papers at seminars and conferences.

This permanent, full-time post is open to job share.
