Closing date 30th September 2013
Professor (W3) for Early Modern History and Gender History,
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany’s leading research universities. The University draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. The RUB is a vital institution in the Ruhr Area, which has been selected as European Capital of Culture for the year 2010.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum – Faculty of History – invites applications for the positions of a Professor (W3) for Early Modern History and Gender History to start on 01 October 2014.
Applicants should be able to cover the approaches of culture and gender history as well as early modern history across the entire width of the field in both research and teaching.
Candidates should further be prepared and able to work in an interdisciplinary context within the research programmes of both faculty and university. A high commitment to teaching and the willingness and ability to attract third party funding are indispensible. Ideally, one of the areas of specialisation candidates should be able to demonstrate is the history of religions including aspects of encounters between different cultures and groups.
Extensive teaching experience is required, as is a commitment to the History Section’s BA/MA courses and the interdisciplinary Master programmes “Gender Studies” and “Medieval and Renaissance Studies” and the willingness and ability to collaborate with the Käte Hamburger Kolleg “Dynamics in the History of Religion between Asia and Europa”.
Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. habilitation) and evidence of special aptitude are just as much required as the willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the RUB and to generally get involved in university processes according to RUB’s mission statement.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is an equal opportunities employer.
Applications should be sent by email to the Dean of the Faculty of History of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Email:firstname.lastname@example.org via the Apply link below, no later than 30 September 2013.
