The Medieval Studies program, sponsored by the University of St. Michael’s College, a Federated University of the University of Toronto, offers specialist, major, and minor programs of study within the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Arts & Science. It offers students the opportunity to study within an interdisciplinary undergraduate program encompassing all aspects of European culture from the fall of Rome to the fall of Constantinople, approximately 450 to 1450 AD. Through its courses in history and thought, language and literature, society and art, the Medieval Studies program offers students the opportunity to study subjects which are not only of value in their own right, but also sources of many things familiar to us, in a context sufficiently unfamiliar to expand our mental horizons and suggest new perspectives.
The University of St. Michael’s College seeks applicants for an appointment in this program, at the rank of Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, for a three-year period beginning July 1, 2017. Applicants must have a PhD in an appropriate discipline (Medieval Studies, Medieval History, Medieval Latin or similar) and must be prepared to teach courses – three per term, Fall and Winter – in areas related to the medieval intellectual tradition; in addition, the applicant will be expected to contribute to the Program’s Medieval Latin course offerings.
