"The USC Department of Classics, having received a generous gift, has been authorized to hire FOUR new full-time tenure-line faculty, open rank (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor). Positions will be available as of August 15, 2017. The new positions are expressions of the University's commitment to classical studies as a central component of humanistic inquiry. Applications are invited from scholars who have a Ph.D. in hand by the time of appointment and who meet both of the following criteria:

The Department seeks to encourage collaboration between current faculty and new hires as well as among those joining the department.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a writing sample (a published paper, dissertation chapter, conference presentation, etc.), and the names of three referees who will be contacted by USC.
