Lecturer/Assistant Professor Ancient History (0.8 fte), per 1 Jan. 2015

29 June 2014

The Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) is looking for a lecturer in Ancient History ( 0.8 fte, 60% teaching, 40% research) on a permanent contract. We are looking for an inspiring all-round lecturer and an excellent and innovative researcher who will complement our current research and teaching activities. The department of Ancient History has a strong research profile with a focus on cultural, religious and political history from the (later) Classical period to the Later Roman Empire.  We welcome applications from all specialisations and periods within Ancient History, but we are primarily aiming to strengthen our current profile with expertise in the chronological period between c. 300 BC and the Early Imperial period. Experience with an interdisciplinary approach to Ancient History is a prerequisite. Knowledge of, and experience with, applications of Digital Humanities in teaching and research will be an advantage.

Candidates who do not speak Dutch will be expected to master Dutch within a time-span of two years to the degree that they can take an active part in the organizational and administrative tasks of the Department.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Onno van Nijf, Chair of Ancient History:

NB you can only apply via the official link that you will find on the website of the university (see below)
