Art and Archaeology of the Roman World (Assistant Professor) University of British Columbia - Canada


The Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies at the University of British Columbia invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Art and Archaeology of the Roman World to commence July 1, 2015. The successful candidate will join a flourishing interdisciplinary department with a longstanding graduate program in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology, with strengths in cross-cultural approaches. S/he will be competent to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in Roman archaeology and Roman visual culture. Beyond the ability to teach the range of Roman material culture, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching of other courses in classical archaeology, Roman history, and/or ancient languages.


An active archaeological project that can provide field-work opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students will be considered an asset. The successful candidate must hold a PhD in Roman Archaeology (or expect to have successfully defended prior to July 1, 2015) and must have demonstrated accomplishments in scholarship along with enthusiasm for teaching in a department with the unique combination of fields present in CNERS. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active program of research, graduate and undergraduate teaching, and to participate fully in graduate supervision, departmental service, events, and initiatives. The programs, faculty research interests, and general activities of CNERS are found at: www.cnrs.ubc.ca.


The starting salary for the position will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

Applicants should send electronic copies of their letter of application, together with a copy of their curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a sample of recent scholarship, and the names and e-mail addresses of three referees. Candidates are asked to request that their referees write separately on their behalf to reach the Department not later than the date indicated. Referees’ signed confidential letters of support can be sent as a .pdf attachment (to the e-mail address indicated below). Applicants should submit their materials to the attention of Marisa Scorda at marisa.scorda(at)ubc.ca.


Deadline for receipt of applications and supporting materials: October 8, 2014

We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities.
