The Queen's College, Oxford


The Governing Body proposes, if a suitable candidate presents himself or herself, to elect a Lecturer in Classics for one year only with effect from 1 October 1998 (during Dr A. M. Bowie's period as University Assessor).

 The Lecturer will be responsible for the organization of language and literature teaching in Classics and Classics and Modern Languages and will be required to teach twelve hours a week for the College. In particular he or she should be able to offer teaching for the Homer, Virgil, and Language (including prose composition) papers for Mods, as well as some of the Literature Special Subjects of Mods (e.g. Sophocles, Aristophanes, Latin Elegy). In Greats an ability to teach a good range of the new papers will be essential: currently, we envisage the need for teaching in Euripides, Greek Comedy Old and New, Ovid, and Latin Satire, but the precise topics will depend on the students' choices. An ability to teach the Greek Core paper would also be an advantage. Full details of the courses are available in the Examination Decrees and Regulations 1997. He or she will be expected to share in the general arrangements of tuition for undergraduates studying Classics and will be called on to take part in entrance and other examinations for the College.

 The basic stipend will be £14,273 a year (together with certain allowances) and the Lecturer will be entitled to a teaching room in College and to free lunch and dinner at the Common Table. The Lecturer will be placed on the USS if this is appropriate. Further particulars and application forms may be obtained from the College Secretary, The Queen's College, Oxford, OX1 4AW. The closing date for applications is 12 December 1997.
