JOB: Oxford

Seen on Classicists (please send any responses to the folks mentioned in the quoted text, not to rogueclassicism!): > Supernumerary Teaching Fellowship In Classical Language & Literature > St. John’s College, Oxford
> St. John’s College invites applications from suitably qualified > candidates for a five-year fixed-term Supernumerary Teaching > Fellowship (without membership of Governing Body) in Classical > Languages and Literature, with effect from 1 October 2010. The > successful candidate will have research interests in the literature of > the Classical period (that is between ca. 800 BC and ca. AD 500), in > Ancient Greek and/or Latin, and the ability to teach a range of core > subjects in one, or, preferably, both, languages and their literatures. >
> The person appointed will teach undergraduates reading for the Honour > School of Literae Humaniores and the associated Joint Schools > (Classics and English, Classics and Modern Languages, Classics and > Oriental Studies) up to a maximum of eight hours each week during > term. He or she will take responsibility for the character, > organisation and delivery of all the College’s undergraduate teaching > in Ancient Greek and Latin languages and literature, including > supervising arrangements made from time to time for extra language > teaching, and will represent these subjects, in collaboration with the > Tutors in Ancient History and Philosophy and the Joint Schools, in the > planning of all aspects of these degree courses at St. John’s. He or > she will also, therefore, participate in the undergraduate admissions > process, share pastoral duties, and take part in College outreach > activities. The election to the Fellowship will be for one year in the > first instance, and renewable thereafter for up to four years, subject > to a satisfactory report on the first year’s duties. The Fellow will > be a member of the University’s Classics faculty (Sub-faculty of > Classical Languages and Literature) and so part of Oxford’s lively and > successful Classics community, but will not be required to undertake > University teaching, examining, or administration, though he or she > may do so with the approval of the College; and the Fellow will be > encouraged to offer one course of eight University lectures each > academic year during the first four years of the appointment. >
> The person elected will already hold a doctorate and will be expected > to engage in original research. A period of sabbatical leave will be > made available in the final year of the appointment, to permit the > Fellow to further his or her research. The annual salary will be on > the incremental scale of £27,183 – £30,594 (subject to revision in > line with any general salary increases). >
> See the Further particulars at > > for information about how to apply for this post. Applications must > reach the College by not later than 29th January 2010.
