The Department of Humanities in the Faculty of Arts and Science invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment in Classics at the rank of Assistant Professor, commencing July 1, 2020, subject to final budgetary approval.
Although the area of specialization for this position is open, the successful candidate’s research and teaching will complement our current faculty and demonstrate an expertise in the material, social, and/or economic aspects of the Mediterranean World, especially in the Hellenistic and Imperial periods.
Classics at MacEwan University is grounded in a commitment to an analysis and interpretation of literary texts and other material sources. In addition to teaching and developing courses in their area of expertise including material culture, the successful candidate will teach a selection of courses from the Department’s current 100- and 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 PhD (or evidence of near completion) 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, academic transcripts, along with the names and contact information of three professional referees. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted by the Department Chair to provide three (3) letters of reference sent directly from referees.
