The University of Roehampton is the most research intensive modern university in the UK, with some of the most highly regarded academic departments in the country.

This is an exciting time for the university; our new £35m state-of-the-art library has just opened, we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe, and have plans for more doctoral scholarships.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. ‘In the Complete University Guide 2018, Roehampton is the highest-ranked modern university in London. Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted university status post-1992. The Complete University Guide does not itself define modern universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching, and working.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact the Head of Classical Civilisation, Professor Fiona McHardy,, or the Head of Department: Professor Don MacRaild,
