The School wishes to appoint a Classicist to the position of Lecturer in Classical Studies (Roman Culture). Lincoln launched its BA (Hons) in Classical Studies in September 2018.

The successful candidate will gain valuable experience of planning and delivering 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. They will coordinate and teach first-year modules on the material culture of the Roman world, and study skills for Classicists; and second-year modules on Roman Britain and Classical reception. They may also be asked to teach in other areas of Classical Studies as required, at first-, second-, or third-year level; to supervise third-year dissertations; to take responsibility for a group of personal tutees; and will be expected to contribute to Open Days and other recruitment activities.
