The Department of Classical Studies at the University of Michigan is seeking to appoint an Assistant or Associate Professor in Latin. The person appointed will be an active contributor to interdepartmental graduate programs in Greek and Roman History and in Classical Art and Archaeology. We are looking for candidates with research interests in historiography, history, religion, or rhetoric, especially of the Republic. We welcome both traditional and innovative approaches to Latin prose and its contexts, but since we have recently hired faculty in Latin poetry, we are not seeking applicants in that area. Teaching responsibilities will include classical civilization and Greek courses as well as Latin literature and Roman culture at all levels. Please see for a fuller description of the position.

PhD must be completed by August 2009. Please send a dossier including a letter of application, at least three letters of recommendation, current CV, evidence of teaching experience, statement of current and future research plans, statement of teaching goals and experience, and a writing sample to the Latin Search Committee, Department of Classical Studies, University of Michigan, 2160 Angell Hall, 435 S.
