The Department of Classics at Union College invites applications for a two-year appointment at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor that will begin in September 2017. We invite applications from specialists in the history of the ancient Mediterranean world. We look for evidence of a strong interest in making interdisciplinary contributions to the curriculum (examples include, but are not limited to, the ancient economy, ancient technology and science, digital humanities, gender, sexuality, and women’s studies, religion). Teaching competencies must include Greek and Latin at all undergraduate levels as well as general courses in translation. We also look for evidence of an active research program.

Union employs a trimester system, and the normal teaching load is two courses per term. Increasing diversity on campus is a critical priority for Union, one that is integral to our mission of preparing students for a globally interconnected world.
