Position Announcement: Visiting Assistant Professor of Roman Archaeology and Assistant Editor of JRA-Deadline April 10, 2017

Visiting Assistant Professor of Roman Archaeology and Assistant Editor of JRA

Brown University and Journal of Roman Archaeology, Providence, RI

The Journal of Roman Archaeology and the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invite applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor of Roman Archaeology who will serve at the same time as the Assistant Editor of JRA.  This full-time position will be shared equally between Brown University and JRA.

Candidates must have previous editorial experience as well as being engaged in a promising and developing research program. We are interested in individuals whose work focuses on any aspect of or period in Roman archaeology, and who have relevant fieldwork experience. Excellence in undergraduate and graduate-level teaching is essential.  The successful candidate will be expected to teach half time — i.e., one course per semester. In the newly created position of Assistant Editor, the successful candidate will also be responsible for assigning and editing all JRA book reviews and managing routine correspondence with authors. This will be a two-year position ideally beginning on July 1, 2017 and subject to renewal; the Ph.D. must be in hand by that date.

Exceptional junior scholars who augment or complement the present strengths and diversity of the Joukowsky Institute community, and who enhance our commitment to inclusive education and research, are particularly encouraged to apply.  We seek candidates who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research. The successful candidate will also be expected to take a full part in the academic life and to contribute to the ongoing activities of the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology.

As the newly appointed Assistant Editor, the successful candidate will also have the opportunity to help shape the future direction of the Journal of Roman Archaeology at a key moment of strength ­- in its 30th year of publication. A good reading knowledge of French, German, Italian, and Spanish is strongly preferred, as well as a track record of high-quality writing.

All candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, short descriptions (150-300 words) of 3-4 proposed courses, and contact information for three references by April 10, 2017. Applications received by April 10, 2017 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.

Please submit application materials online at apply.interfolio.com/41106.  There is no need to provide hard copies of application materials for those that have already been submitted electronically.
