Two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in International Humanities
Department of Classics, Brown University
The Department of Classics seeks applications for a post-doctoral fellowship
in classical reception studies for a tenure of two academic years: 2009-2010
and 2010-2011. We are looking for a scholar who specializes in the reception
of classical antiquity in Africa, Asia, or Latin America. The candidate
would be expected to be competent in Greek or Latin as well as the languages
necessary to his or her specific research. The Department of Classics would
house the fellow, who would also have the opportunity to participate in
departments and programs representing the relevant area studies.
Postdoctoral fellows will teach one course per semester, and participate as
well in the many activities of the Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown.
Applicants should have received their doctorate from an institution other
than Brown University within the last five years. Applicants from outside
North America are strongly encouraged to apply. The two-year appointment
will begin July 1, 2009, or as soon as possible thereafter. Ph.D. or
equivalent is required by the time of appointment. Interested candidates
should send a letter of application, c.v., writing sample, and three letters
of reference to: Chair, Postdoctoral Fellowship Search, Department of
Classics, Brown University, Box 1856, Providence, Rhode Island, 02912, USA.

2009 and will continue until the position is filled; applications received
by February 24th will receive fullest consideration. Brown University is an
