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.
