Blegen Research Fellowship (Vassar)

The Vassar College Department of Classics invites applications for the
Blegen Research Fellowship in 2004-05, which is intended for a scholar
who needs a year of reduced teaching responsibility to develop or bring
to fruition a major project in a specified area of research. The
Fellowship is tenable for one year by a scholar who has taught
full-time at a college or university for at least three years and holds
the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor (or its equivalent).  For
2004-05 we invite applications from scholars specializing in cultural
connections between either Greece or Rome and other civilizations of the
ancient Mediterranean. We would be especially pleased to appoint
someone working on any aspect of Jewish civilization as it intersects with
Greece and/or Rome.  Applicants should note that Vassar is an EO/AA employer
and considers faculty diversity an institutional priority.

The Fellow teaches two courses. One, of the Fellow's own devising, is a
seminar at the advanced level taught in English translation and
related to the Fellow's research interests, but of general interest to
the whole student body. In 2004-05 the other course will be either
intermediate Latin or an advanced Greek language course on a topic chosen by
the Fellow in consultation with the department. Stipend appropriate
to experience, plus benefits, and the use, without cost, of a
furnished two bedroom apartment (including utilities).

Applications due January 15, 2004.  Send to Robert Brown, Chair,
Department of Classics, Box 733, Vassar College, 124 Raymond
Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY 12604, USA. Please include: a curriculum
vitae; a statement describing the content and current status of your
research project; suggestions for a seminar in English translation
related to your interests (include title and brief course description);
suggestions for an advanced Greek course, if you have had experience in
teaching Greek at this level; a representative sample of work; names,
addresses, and telephone numbers of two referees, whom you should ask to
send supporting letters to the above address as soon as possible. The
selection process will take into account the needs of the department in
addition to the intrinsic  merits of the applicant.
