About the role
We are seeking to strengthen our team by recruiting an individual with excellent research and teaching potential in the field of Ancient History. The School has a thriving distance learning community and plans on further development in this space with increased focus on online delivery. A successful candidate would be expected to engage in development of online taught content as we explore new teaching spaces in HE and enhance our current distance learning provision.

Ancient History at Leicester is known for both world-leading research and innovative pedagogy, as well as for its deep-seated commitment to interdisciplinarity and diversity. We have particular strengths in the study of the Hellenistic world (Masséglia, Shipley, Stewart), late antiquity (Christie, Merrills), and the Roman provinces (Haselgrove, James, Mattingly, Scott, Taylor); as well as broader expertise covering the ancient Near East (Wisnom), and Roman Italy (Allison, Lennon). We also have a growing presence as a leader in community-based engagement of Ancient History through our commitment to the Classics for All charity. We are now seeking to expand our core staff base by recruiting an outstanding Ancient Historian, with interests and specialisms that will expand our current offering.
