The Opportunity

The Centre for Ancient Cultures seeks to fill a continuing position to be taken up by July 2017. The appointee to this position is expected to have a dynamic research and teaching profile, and experience in administration and coordination of staff. We seek candidates with a strong track record in the study of ancient empires of the ancient Near East, primarily Assyria, Babylon and Persia, but with knowledge of those originating to both the east and west of this focus area. This open field search welcomes applications from candidates in all areas of specialisation but priority will be given to ancient history and archaeology.

We expect candidates to show evidence of a strong interest in interdisciplinary research and to have previous experience of teaching ancient cultures at the tertiary level.

The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to teaching in the undergraduate and honours programs. You will also undertake research supervision of graduate students, engage in original and innovative research and be prepared to collaborate in research and team teaching. The successful applicant is also expected to coordinate the Ancient Cultures major, which incorporates Ancient History, Archaeology (Australian and Mediterranean), Classics, and language study (Egyptian, ancient Greek, Latin) and supervise the administration of the Centre for Ancient Cultures. You will be expected to develop a new undergraduate unit on ancient empires of the first millennium BCE to extend and strengthen the range of offerings within the Ancient Cultures major.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
