The Department of Humanities in the Faculty of Arts and Science at MacEwan University invites applications for a Tenure-Track appointment in Classics, at the rank of Assistant Professor, commencing July 1, 2019, subject to final budgetary approval.

Classics at MacEwan University is grounded in a commitment to close reading of core texts in classical literature, history, and philosophy. Although the area of specialization for this position is open, the successful candidate’s research and teaching will be oriented to close reading of historically significant works. In addition to teaching and developing courses in their area of expertise, the successful candidate will teach a selection of courses from the Department’s current 200-level classics offerings (as listed online); applicants should speak to their readiness to teach one or more of these courses. An ability to teach ancient Greek and Latin is required. The Department of Humanities is a multidisciplinary department housing programs in Classics, French, History, Philosophy, and Spanish. The Department values collaboration and integration, as evidenced by our great works-based Humanities courses and our emerging interest in digital humanities. Comfort in a multidisciplinary humanist environment and experience making connections between humanist disciplines are assets.

Preferred candidates will hold a Ph.D. in a relevant area of expertise and will demonstrate a primary commitment to undergraduate teaching and an ongoing research program.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching dossier (including recent teaching evaluations), statement of research interests, sample of scholarly work, and academic transcripts through the MacEwan University careers page. Three letters of reference, quoting the competition number and candidate name, should be sent directly from referees to careers@macewan.ca.
