The Department of Greek and Latin at UCL is looking to appoint a postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ancient Greek literature.
This four-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is funded by the A. G. Leventis Foundation, and its aim is to provide a career development opportunity for someone who is at a relatively early stage of their academic career. Therefore, applicants must not yet have held a full-time permanent academic post in a UK university or comparable UK institution or have had a previous long-term research fellowship.
Applicants must have completed their doctorate, but they should not have had their doctoral viva more than five years from the application closing date (except in cases of career breaks). The successful candidate will have a research interest in an area of Ancient Greek literature and / or culture, which may include its reception in Latin literature or in the literature and culture of later periods; expertise in Greek drama is particularly welcome.
In addition to pursuing their own research, the postholder will be expected to contribute to departmental conferences in ancient Greek culture, to undertake cultural and outreach activities and to oversee the annual Greek Play performed by the Department’s students. The Fellow will also contribute to the Department’s teaching.
The closing date for applications is 13 March 2020.
