The Department of Greek and Latin at University College London (UCL) is seeking to appoint a Professor of Greek with effect from 1 September 2014.

The successful applicant will be expected to maintain and enhance the academic standing of UCL, to advance the discipline by carrying out and publishing research, to attract and supervise PhD students in core areas of Greek literature (poetry and prose) and to teach students to a high academic standard in Greek language and literature. S/he will also be expected to take on senior administrative duties.

The person appointed should be a scholar with a substantial international research record in Greek language and/or literature and research interests that maintain and/or complement the existing strengths of the Department. They should have experience of successful supervision of research students in ancient Greek literature and of taking on leadership roles within a department or the discipline.
