Faculty of Classics


The Faculty of Classics hopes, subject to final confirmation of funding, to offer two four-year, postdoctoral Research Fellowships and two three-year Graduate Studentships from 1 October 2001, to work on a research project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB), entitled 'The anatomy of cultural revolution: Athenian art, literature, language, philosophy, and politics, 430-380 BC. This project aims to bring together four researchers with separate expertise in Greek literature, history, philosophy, philology, and archaeology to investigate, under the overall direction of Professor Robin Osborne, cultural changes at Athens at the end of the fifth century. Candidates for the two postdoctoral Research Fellowships must have completed a doctorate in some relevant classical subject by October 2001. The salary will be £16,775 to £25,213 a year. Candidates for the two Graduate Studentships must satisfy the conditions for an AHRB research studentship and will be funded at the AHRB graduate studentship rate.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Osborne, Corpus Christi College, Oxford, OX1 4JF (e-mail robin.osborne@ccc.ox.ac.uk), from whom further particulars are available. Applications should be addressed to the Chairman, Faculty of Classics, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DA. The closing date is 6 July 2001.

The University is committed to equality of opportunity.
