New Hampshire Position said...

Originally posted on December 8, 2008:

The University of New Hampshire seeks to fill a definite, full-time, benefits eligible position for a Lecturer in the Classics Program of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures to begin in August 2009. This is a one-year position, but it may be renewed for an additional two years, contingent on performance and available funding. PhD in hand by start of appointment is preferred. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.

We seek a classicist who is trained broadly enough to contribute courses in both Greek and Latin languages, as well as in Greek and Roman literature in translation, mythology, civilization, or material culture. The teaching load is three courses per semester, with the precise course assignments determined based upon the qualifications of the successful applicant and the program's needs.

Interested candidates should send a letter of application detailing their qualifications, CV, and, if the PhD has not yet been conferred, graduate transcripts. They should also arrange for at least two, but no more than four, letters of reference to be sent. The address for applications and letters is: R. Scott Smith, Chair of the Classics Search Committee, University of New Hampshire, 301 Murkland Hall, 15 Library Way, Durham NH 03824. Application materials or questions may also be sent to classics.search@unh.edu [please note that this email address will not be functional until later this week, hopefully by the 10th--I'll update with another address if this does not happen].

Review of applications will begin December 15, 2008, and interviews will be conducted at the APA. Potential candidates should be aware, however, that applications will continue to be accepted until January 23, 2009, and a final decision is unlikely before the middle of February.
