The Department of Classics at Brown University has been authorized to announce an open-rank search for a historian of the exact sciences in antiquity. We seek candidates with a primary focus on one, and ideally on at least two, ancient civilization(s) and who possess scholarly and teaching interests in multiple aspects of those civilizations, such as (but not limited to) ancient astronomy, the physical and mathematical sciences, and the transmission of scientific texts. We anticipate that the successful candidate will establish connections with others at Brown interested in the history of science and in the ancient world. Though the Department of Classics is conducting this search, a focus on Greco-Roman antiquity is not a requirement, and a successful candidate who works primarily in another field or fields will be appointed to the Department most closely aligned with his/her interests. Prerequisites for consideration include evidence of scholarly distinction and excellence in teaching, commensurate with rank. Junior candidates must have the Ph.D. in hand by July 1, 2007 and should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a sample of scholarly writing. Candidates above the junior level should submit a letter of application and a curriculum vitae, including the names and contact information of at least four references. Applications should be sent, preferably by November 10, 2006, to: Chair of Exact Sciences Search Committee, Department of Classics, Brown University, Providence, RI 02912, USA. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled or closed. Preliminary interviews will be held, when feasible, at the American Philological Association annual meeting in San Diego (January 5-8, 2007) and/or the American Philosophical Association meeting in Washington, D.C. (December 27-30, 2006). Inquiries may be directed to [email protected]. Brown University is committed to diversity in its faculty and encourages applications from qualified women and under-represented minority candidates.
