Cornell College, a private undergraduate liberal arts college, invites
applications for a tenure-track appointment in classical studies at the
assistant professor level to begin in the fall of 2009. We seek a
generalist, with some preference given to those with expertise in
ancient history, archaeology, or comparative literature, who will work
with other faculty to expand the classics curriculum and strengthen the
role of the department in the overall intellectual life of the College.
Teaching responsibilities include Greek and Latin language courses, a
course that explores the multicultural world of the ancient
Mediterranean, and topics courses in the area of the candidate's
specialization. The successful candidate will have opportunities to
participate in the College's Writing Program and/or First-Year
Experience Program. Candidates should have the Ph.D. or be near
completion of the degree. Cornell College has attracted national
attention for its distinctive academic calendar under which faculty
teach and students take one course at a time in month-long terms. The
College is committed to excellence in teaching and encourages
interdisciplinary interests among its faculty. Send paper copies of
letter, vitae, graduate transcripts, statement of teaching and research
interests, and three letters of reference to Ms. Ann Opatz, Assistant
Dean, Office of Academic Affairs, Cornell College, 600 First Street SW,
