Greek Job Description

The Department of Classics in Princeton University announces a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in ancient Greek literature to begin in Fall 2008.

Less important than field of specialization or period is promise as a scholar and teacher. We are looking for someone capable of contributing to our entire program, both in the languages, from beginning courses through graduate seminars, and classes in translation, both traditional topics and innovative new courses. It is expected that the candidate will have the PhD in hand by September 1, 2008.

Applications (no electronic filing please) should be directed to Andrew Ford, Chair of Greek Search Committee, Department of Classics, Princeton University, Princeton NJ 08544. Applicants should include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a sample of scholarly writing (not more than 30 pp.) and should arrange for at least three confidential letters of recommendation to be sent. Applicants who wish to be sure of being considered for interviews at the American Philological Association meeting in Chicago in Jan. 08 should have all materials arrive by December 7, 2007
