The Department of Classics and Archaeology at the University of Nottingham is looking to appoint a Teaching Associate in Roman literature and culture.

We believe in an inclusive working environment for all. We are welcoming, supportive, and caring, and pride ourselves on our positive community. Diversity is vital to our success and fundamental to our values, and we want to continue to tackle the issues faced by underrepresented groups in Classics and Archaeology. You will be able to demonstrate an ability to make a positive difference in this regard, and we are particularly keen to receive applications from people who are currently underrepresented in the field.

Shortlisting is anonymous: we cannot see any personal data or the ‘Additional Information’ section in your application until shortlisting is completed. Shortlisting is by criteria-based questions based on the person specification, rather than CV or cover letter.

Your role as a Teaching Associate will be varied and challenging and you will be able to demonstrate a strong teaching ability in Roman literature, particularly the teaching of Latin to an advanced level. You will be responsible for teaching and convening an undergraduate module on Post-Beginners Latin and contributing lectures and seminars to first year team-taught modules in the broader subject area of Roman literature, history and culture.

You must have a PhD already awarded in a relevant subject area or to be awarded by time of appointment or equivalent in professional qualifications and experience and the ability to teach in the areas outlined above.

The well-being and development of our students is of utmost importance to us, so the successful candidate will take a proactive role in the pastoral support of students. You will have the ability to collaborate effectively with others to work accurately under pressure, whilst prioritising your own work activities in response to differing needs and demands.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term, full-time basis (36.25 hours per week), commencing 1 September 2023 and ending 31 January 2024. Arrangements for job share may be considered.

Requests for secondment from internal candidates may be considered on the basis that prior agreement has been sought from both your current line manager and the manager of your substantive post, if you are already undertaking a secondment role.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Will Bowden, Head of Department, email: [email protected] ; please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
