The Department of Classics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill in the College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a position
in Late Ancient/Medieval Latin, either tenure-track at the assistant
professor level, or tenured or tenure-track at the associate professor
level. The area of specialization is open, but we particularly welcome
candidates working in Late Antiquity (4th to 7th centuries), and those with
an ability to teach paleography at the graduate level. Teaching duties will
include graduate and undergraduate courses in Late Ancient and Medieval
Latin and civilization, and undergraduate courses in Classical Latin and
civilization. The successful candidate will be expected to take an active
part in the interdepartmental program in Medieval Studies. UNC Chapel Hill

Studies. Applicants should demonstrate excellence in research and a
commitment to teaching; teaching experience is preferred. Preference will be
given to those who have the Ph.D. in hand. Women and minority scholars are
encouraged to apply. UNC Chapel Hill is an EOE employer. Complete
