King’s College London is looking to appoint a leading scholar with an international reputation and research record to the Koraes Chair of Modern Greek & Byzantine History, Language & Literature. The chair was established in 1918, and is unusual in covering three academic disciplines (history, language, literature), as well as a chronological span of some 1700 years. The Koraes Professor provides academic leadership to a group of scholars who collectively have been responsible for developing and delivering high-quality teaching and research in the fields designated by the Chair. The successful candidate will be a member of the Department of Classics, and will play a leading role in the Faculty’s Centre for Hellenic Studies.
The selection process will include a presentation and a panel interview.
Interviews are scheduled to be held soon after the closing deadline.
The salary will be paid at Professorial Grade, tba (the minimum professorial salary is £64,979 p.a.), plus £2,923 p.a. London Weighting Allowance.
This post will be based on a full time, indefinite position.
Closing date: 03 October 2017
