The advertisement has now been updated with some additional information and a later closing date here:
This has been made possible by generous external donations, matched by the College’s continuing financial commitment to this historic Chair, which will celebrate the centenary of its establishment in 2018.
More on the appeal and the response to it is expected to be announced by King’s College London shortly.
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.
