University of Auckland, NZ

The Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, is seeking to fill a permanent academic position at the Lecturer level (for those unfamiliar with the NZ system, this is roughly equivalent to the Assistant Professor level in the USA).

Job # 13350

The successful candidate must have completed a doctorate and be able to teach Latin language and literature to graduate level and offer courses in classical literature and culture in translation. Prior teaching experience will be an advantage, as will an ability to contribute also to the teaching of Greek language and literature; research achievement must be demonstrable.

The Department of Classics and Ancient History is one of New Zealand's top-ranked departments in that field, offering programmes in Latin, Greek and Ancient History to post-graduate level and a major in Classical Studies at the undergraduate level. The department has a strong profile in the Faculty of Arts based on its high quality graduate programme and research activity in the ancient civilisations of Greece, Rome and Egypt.

Please visit https://www.opportunities.auckland.ac.nz/ for the full job description.

Dear Colleagues,

My department needs a "highly qualified" person to teach various beginning
(and perhaps higher levels, depending on experience and qualifications)
courses for our Classics department for the next three years, 2 courses per
semester: Greek 2 and Humanities 124 "The Ancient World" classes this
fall--but in some semesters both sections may be Greek or one Greek and one
Latin. We are a public Liberal Arts university located in Asheville, North
Carolina. Any leads would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Lora
