The University of Manchester seeks to appoint a full-time, fixed-term Lecturer (Teaching-Focused) in Classics and Ancient History, tenable from 1st September 2016 – 31st August 2017.  This position is designed to cover teaching, administrative, and related duties within the Division, involving primarily some combination of courses in Classics and Ancient History.

The principal duties will be to contribute to the teaching, assessment and administration of course-units in Classical Literature and Greek and Latin Language, and to supervise dissertations and long essays at undergraduate level, as well as contributing to the pastoral care of students.  You will be particularly responsible for the split-level course unit in some area of classical literature, to be discussed further at interview, together with a significant contribution of other teaching, both language and literature.  It is expected that you will deliver an existing course unit and the ability to contribute also to the teaching of ancient history would be an advantage. 

You will be encouraged to involve yourself in the life of the Department and/or Division.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from BME applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.
