Hiram College invites applications for a visiting full-time assistant professor in Classical Studies beginning August 2015. The College seeks a dynamic colleague to re-create curriculum in Classical Studies after a decade lapse. Preferred candidates would have a Ph.D. in Classical Studies, but perhaps in other disciplines with appropriate expertise and experience.
