A Ph.D. at the time of appointment is required, and teaching experience is preferred. Salary is dependent on candidate's experience and credentials.

The successful candidate will have, besides an ongoing scholarly project in the digital Humanities, a commitment to innovative approaches to integrating undergraduate research into a technological, active learning curriculum. The successful candidate will in addition show evidence of ability to teach Greek and Latin language courses at all levels from introductory through graduate seminars.

Possible sub-specialties include, but are not limited to, Roman poetry, Latin Church texts, Medieval Latin, Late Roman history, science, and other literature.

This position is part of a University of Iowa initiative in digital public Humanities that promotes collaboration with communities and organizations across and outside the university. A successful hire will actively participate in exploring the role of digital practices on the production of scholarship and creative work in projects central to the Humanities. The department will encourage collaboration with the University’s Studio for Public Digital Arts and Humanities (http://dsph.uiowa.edu/wpDSPH). Candidates invited for an on-campus interview will have the opportunity to include a presentation of their digital scholarship as part of the interview process.

The Department of Classics includes nine full-time faculty members, one visiting assistant professor and three lecturers. Additionally the department maintains strong ties with colleagues in Rhetoric, History, Art History and Religion.
