The University of Lincoln is an ambitious and fast-growing academic community.  Although established within the last twenty years, it already ranks among the Top 50 Universities in the UK (43rd in Complete University Guide 2019).

The School of History and Heritage forms part of the College of Arts, the largest College in the University, and is located at the University’s main Brayford campus beside a natural pool in the River Witham. The School has a growing portfolio of subjects to add to its well-established History and Conservation programmes, and has launched or is about to launch Philosophy, Art History and History, and American Studies BA courses.

The School wishes to appoint a Classicist to the position of Lecturer in Classical Studies (Greek Culture). Prospective applicants should specialise in Greek literature and language, with a proven ability to teach across a wide range of Classics modules, including Greek and Roman history and Latin.

This is a teaching-focussed role fixed-term for two years. The successful candidate will gain valuable experience of planning and delivering first- and second-year modules to students in both the BA (Hons) Classical Studies and BA (Hons) History degree programmes, and will be join a teaching team with expertise in ancient, late antique, and medieval history and archaeology.

S/he will coordinate and teach first-year modules on the culture and history of the Greek world, Greek and Latin literature, and introductory Latin; and second-year modules on the Hellenistic world and intermediate Latin. S/he may also be asked to teach in other areas of Classical culture or history as required, at first-, second-, or third-year level, and will be expected to contribute to Open Days and other recruitment activities.

Lincoln launched its BA (Hons) in Classical Studies in September 2018, and will be welcoming its second cohort of students in September 2019. First-year students receive a solid grounding in the art, archaeology, history, and literature of the Greek and Roman worlds, in addition to a full year’s tuition in the Latin language. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the degree programme at its upper levels.

The successful candidate will join a thriving, friendly School with a strong collaborative culture. We take teaching and student experience very seriously, and in the latest NSS the History programme performed well.
