Field of specialization: Greek literature and history

´ PhD relevant to the field of Classics is required.  Candidates should have sufficient refereed publications (minimum three) to qualify for supervising graduate research at the University of Ottawa.

´ Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience, and consistent with the University's Collective Agreement.
´ All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply;  however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.  Equity is a University policy.  The University strongly encourages applications from women.
