The result of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise confirms Exeter’s position as one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities. Almost 90% of the University’s research is at internationally recognised levels and every single subject submitted included world-leading (4*) research. When adjusted for the 95% of staff submitted, Exeter ranks among the top 15 in the UK for research out of 159 higher education institutions. The Times Higher Education described Exeter as ‘a rising star among research-intensive institutions’.

The fixed term (2 years), full time post of Lecturer in Classics (Greek Language and Literature) will contribute to extending the research profile of Classics and Ancient History at Exeter, particularly in Greek Language and Literature, and preferably with a focus on Greek literature of the imperial age.
