The College and Faculty of Classics seek to appoint an Associate Professor in Latin Language and Literature with effect from 1 September 2020. This post is associated with a Tutorial Fellowship at Corpus Christi College. They intend to appoint a front-rank classicist possessing or with the potential for an outstanding record in research at international level and with a strong commitment to teaching.

The appointment will be a permanent post (after initial probation). The total University and College stipend is on the scale £48,114 – £64,605 p.a., plus allowances (including housing allowance of £15,300). Additional salary of £2,804 p.a. will apply if awarded the title of Professor. The appointment will be pensionable under the USS scheme.

The successful candidate must have an internationally outstanding research record, appropriate to their career stage and be able to provide research-led teaching and supervision in Latin Literature; of particular interest would be the capacity to teach Early Latin, post-Augustan poetry, or the Roman Novel at graduate and undergraduate level, though applications are very welcome from scholars of any branch of Latin Literature. They should also have the ability and willingness to undertake administrative duties, and evidence of good interpersonal and organisational skills is essential.
