We are looking for a Lecturer in Ancient History.

The Opportunity:

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh is pleased to invite applications for an open-ended Lectureship in Ancient History, within the Department of Classics.

Your skills and attributes for success:

    • Research expertise in Greek History (broadly conceived).
    • Evidence of experience in teaching, indicative of commitment to and potential for excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Greek history.
    • Portfolio of excellent research, including recent or forthcoming publications, commensurate with career stage.
