The department of Classics at Cornell University is seeking to appoint a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Latin prose literature from the Republic or Empire, to begin July 1st, 2008. The department is particularly interested in scholars whose work furthers our understanding of literary qualities of the texts they study (including those outside the usual teaching canon). The appointee will teach courses in Latin at all levels and participate in the research and graduate activities of the department. An interest in engaging with other departments (e.g. with Comparative Literature, English, History, or Philosophy) would be welcome. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

Please send a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, three letters of reference, and a representative writing sample to Professor Charles Brittain, Latin Search Committee, Department of Classics, Cornell University, 120 Goldwin Smith Hall, Ithaca NY 14853.

Interviews will be conducted at the APA annual meeting in Chicago, January 4th-6th, 2008. Cornell is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and Educator.
