Candidates should be no more than six years from the conferral of PhD on January 1 2018, and during their employment should aim to complete a post-doctoral project on any aspect of ancient Greek or Roman performance (defining ancient as from c. 1500BC to c. 400AD). This could include linguistic performance, theatrical or non-theatrical performance, including epic, tragedy, comedy, satyr-play, pantomime, lyric (choral or non-choral), oratory or other sophistic performance; the social and cultural significance of performance, its description in literary and/or non-literary texts. Preference will be given to those whose project is aligned with the work of C-DaRe (the Centre for Dance Research), the Centre for Post-Digital Cultures, the nascent Centre for Visual Culture, or the University Research Centre for Trust, Peace, and Social Relations.

Candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Professor Judith Mossman at ac6616@coventry.ac.uk for informal discussion before applying. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
