The Department of Classics invites applications for an approved,
tenure-track appointment to be made at the assistant professor level,
beginning August 2004. Candidates should demonstrate a solid commitment
to undergraduate teaching, intellectual breadth and versatility, and a
research agenda that complements the interests of other members of the
department. The successful candidate will be able to teach Latin and
Greek at all undergraduate levels, Latin prose composition, and
classical literature in translation. Applicants with interests in
intensive language instruction and/or Latin teaching methods, including
at the secondary school level, are especially welcome. Ph.D. in Classics
must be in hand by June 2004.
Established in 2000, the Department of Classics at Grand Valley State
University presently includes five full-time tenured and tenure-track
faculty. In addition to courses within the major, faculty members
regularly offer courses with enrollments typically capped at 25-40 in
the General Education program and in the Honors College; the latter
offers regular opportunities for collaborative teaching.
Interested candidates are asked to submit a letter of application and a
complete dossier, including curriculum vitae, graduate transcript, three
letters of recommendation, and a short sample (maximum 20 pages) of
scholarly work. Applications should be sent to Diane Rayor, Chair,
