The Department of Classics at the University of California, Los Angeles, has been authorized to make an appointment to a full-time position in the language and culture of Modern Greece at the rank of Lecturer, effective July 1, 2018, with a minimum of three years of funding earmarked for the position. The appointment will be for an initial two-year term, with the possibility of annual renewal thereafter.
This appointment is part of an initiative to build a new center for Hellenic studies, and the successful candidate will teach Modern Greek language at the introductory and intermediate levels, as well as lecture and seminar courses, with readings in translation, on Greek culture and its influence from antiquity to the present. Experience in language teaching will be a primary desideratum; training in ancient and Byzantine Greek will be welcome, but not required, as will expertise in comparative literature, film studies, and other fields relevant to an understanding of Greek culture. We also welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
Applicants should submit the following by 4 December 2017, after which date the search committee will begin to review applications:
• Letter of application
• Current curriculum vitae
• Evidence of teaching effectiveness
• Sample syllabi
• Sample of scholarly work (no more than 25 pages)
