JOB OPENING: Assistant Professor of Mediterranean Studies in U-Michigan
Department of Classical Studies

Sep 24, 2014

Assistant Professor of Mediterranean Studies

The Department of Classical Studies at the University of Michigan has been
authorized to fill a position beginning July 1, 2015 at the level of
Assistant Professor.

The area within Classical Studies is open, although we are particularly
interested in candidates with expertise in Aegean Prehistory, Classical
Reception or Ancient Science. Preference will be given to candidates who do
not duplicate existing strengths. This position is part of a new University
cluster on “The Mediterranean Perspective on Global History and Culture”
devoted to studying the Mediterranean as a dynamic area of cultural,
religious, social and political exchange (see
www.lsa.umich.edu/mediterranean) and involving Classical Studies, History
of Art, Judaic Studies, and Romance Languages and Literatures. The
candidate must be interested in wide-ranging cross-disciplinary approaches
to networks of cultural interaction across the Mediterranean, and will
participate in Mediterranean-based curricula and programs both within their
own departments and interdepartmentally, including a collaborative
undergraduate course on interdisciplinary approaches to the Mediterranean.

Qualifications: PhD or equivalent by date of appointment.

Candidates should send a cover letter, CV, and article or chapter-length
writing sample, along with three letters of reference to
lsa-med-classics-***@umich.edu by November 3, 2014. (The committee will
continue to accept applications through November 15, 2014.)

Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. The University of Michigan is
supportive of the needs of dual career couples and is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer.
