Job description
FASoS is seeking an Assistant Professor with demonstrated excellence in teaching and research in contemporary (post-1945) Western European history, with a particular emphasis on the political history of European integration and cooperation.

Research is carried out within the context of the Research Institute for Arts and Social Sciences and, in particular, relating to the interdisciplinary research programme Politics and Culture in Europe (PCE). S/He is expected to develop international research projects and to attract external funding that is related to the faculty’s core research themes.

The selected candidate will contribute to the teaching and coordination of courses and supervision of internships, projects and theses in the BA and MA programmes of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and in the BA programme of the Liberal Arts & Sciences in the Faculty Humanities and Science. The division of teaching and research duties follows the regular division used at the Faculty of 60% teaching and management and 40% research. The research time can be extended through external fundraising.

Suitable candidates will have a PhD degree in History with a focus on modern and contemporary (post-1945) Western European history, and the political history of European integration and cooperation in particular. Fluency in English is a prerequisite, while non-Dutch speaking applicants should be willing to learn Dutch (basic level). After earning the PhD, they will have gained relevant work experience in an academic position at a university.

The candidate should be an experienced and enthusiastic teacher and have demonstrated ability in thesis supervision and teaching coordination roles. Experience with course development is an asset. The candidate is able to stimulate student learning and to maximize student participation in our system of small-scale problem based learning (PBL). Experience with teaching in international classrooms is preferable.

Candidates should display outstanding quality in research and be open to an interdisciplinary approach. They will have a relevant international network and a track record of potential for grant acquisition. International peer-reviewed academic publications are imperative.

The candidate is expected to be a team player, to have an open, effective management style, and be ready to fulfil an administrative role in the faculty.

What we have to offer

This implies a minimum of € 3.475,-- and a maximum of € 4.757,-- gross per month for a full-time appointment of 38 hours per week (salary scale 11, Dutch Universities Conditions of Employment).
