Employer Website:
The Classical Studies Program at Bard College invites applications for the second iteration of its newly created postdoctoral fellowship (2023-25). The purpose of the fellowship is to help advance the academic careers of promising early-stage teacher-scholars while increasing the diversity and enriching the intellectual vitality of our small, interdisciplinary program as well as the wider Bard College community. We are especially interested in receiving applications from individuals who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented and marginalized in the professoriate (including, but not limited to, Black, African American, Asian American, Indigenous, or Latinx candidates), and/or individuals whose experience, teaching, or research will contribute to diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity in the field of Classical Studies.

  • Applicants for this position may specialize in any aspect of the literature, material culture, or history of Greece, Rome, or the wider Mediterranean world.
  • Applicants should be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and to participating in the intellectual life of a small Liberal Arts College.
  • Eligible candidates will have received the PhD in the past three years, or may still be ABD (with a clear pathway to completion) at the time they take up the fellowship.
The fellowship is for a period of two years, beginning July 1, 2023. The teaching load is 1-1. The fellowship comes with a full-time salary, health benefits, and research funds of $2,000 per year, as well as additional funds and institutional support to organize an academic conference or another public-facing program at Bard during the term of the fellowship. The Fellow will be provided with office space, a computer and library access, and will be welcomed into the College’s new Faculty Cohort Mentorship Program designed to support early-career faculty at Bard.

The Classical Studies Program at Bard College comprises four full-time faculty members, as well as affiliated members in other academic programs. For more about our program, please visit: .
