The Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies (CAMS) at
The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for the
appointment of a tenure-track assistant professor or a tenured associate
professor in the field of Roman history, beginning August, 2019.
We seek applications from candidates with active research interests in
the history of the ancient Roman world. Complementary areas of
specialization or research experience are welcome, such as Roman
archaeology and material culture, or Latin epigraphy. Primary teaching
responsibilities include instruction in Roman history, civilization, and
literature at all undergraduate levels. The successful candidate is
expected to teach broad survey courses that contribute to the General
Education curriculum offered by the department (e.g., Ancient
Mediterranean Civilizations) and should be able to teach Latin language
and literature courses at all levels. The department embraces the entire
Mediterranean and Near Eastern world in antiquity and welcomes
candidates who can contribute to the dialogue across the fields of
Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies. It is desirable that this
position will contribute to the department’s study abroad programs.
For candidates at the assistant professor level, requirements include
Ph.D. in hand by the time of appointment, at least three years of
college-level teaching experience, and evidence of scholarly publication
and productivity. Candidates at the level of associate professor should
demonstrate excellence in their achievements both in college-level
teaching and in scholarly research in order to satisfy the departmental
criteria for tenure.
Candidates should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae
(including contact information for their three references), a sample of
scholarly writing (no more than thirty pages), and a teaching portfolio
online through the application portal. Candidates should arrange to have
three letters of recommendation sent directly to the Roman History
Search Committee (camsjobsearch at psu.edu). Review of applications will
begin on November 16 and will continue until the position is filled.
Preliminary interviews of selected candidates will be conducted at the
Annual SCS/AIA Meeting in San Diego, January 3–6, 2019 or by Skype.
