Six-Hour Stipendiary Lectureship in Ancient History

Closing date: 
Wednesday 18 May

Balliol College proposes, if a suitable candidate applies, to appoint a six-hour Stipendiary Lecturer in Ancient History for Michaelmas Term 2016. 

The lecturer will be required to teach up to six hours of Greek History (Archaic History and 5th Century to 404 B.C.) for the Honour Schools of Classics, Ancient and Modern History, and Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, and to take some responsibility for the general organisation of these courses (including Admissions), and for pastoral care of students; teaching for some of the historical options in Literae Humaniores Honour Moderations and CAAH Moderations will also be expected (e.g. Thucydides and the West, Aristophanes).  The lecturer will receive a stipend of £4,295 and certain common room rights.  The College has a preference for appointing someone whose main specialism is in a central period of Greek history; and applicants will be free to make exchange arrangements with other colleges in respect of the options which they are unable to cover.

Applicants should provide a letter of application supported by a curriculum vitae, and should state which of the standard subjects they are able to teach.  Details of the courses offered for the various Honour Schools can be found at:

Applicants should provide the names of two referees, whom they should ask to write directly to the Senior Tutor.  Applications and references must reach the Senior Tutor, Balliol College, Oxford OX1 3BJ, by Wednesday 18 May 2016.  Interviews will be held around Thursday 26 or Friday 27 May.

Balliol College is an equal opportunities employer.
