Cast gallery, Museum of Classical Archaeology

Classics is expanding its range, embracing the whole of ancient Mediterranean culture and all that Classics has meant to the world since antiquity. To enable us to take advantage of the opportunities that this expansion offers, we need to increase our funded positions for teaching and research.  Additional University Teaching Officer posts will allow us to provide a greater range of specialist expertise for our undergraduate and postgraduate students.

New lectureships will allow us to attract talented researchers working over the whole range of Classics, capturing for Cambridge their energies and ideas in teaching and research. 

  • A gift of £1 million will fund a University Lectureship for 10 years
  • A gift of £2.5 million will endow a named Lectureship permanently

To find out more about supporting a new endowed University lectureship, please contact Amanda Lightstone, CUDAR Senior Associate Director for the School of Arts and Humanities or James Warren, Chair of the Faculty Board of Classics.
