The Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) is looking for an Assistant Professor in Ancient History (0.8 fte, 60% teaching, 40% research) on a temporary contract for 2 years starting from 15 January 2018. We are looking for an inspiring all-round lecturer and an excellent and innovative researcher who will complement our current research and teaching activities as well as share in our administrative duties.
The department of Ancient History has a strong research profile with a focus on cultural, religious and political history of the Greek world in the Hellenistic and Roman periods to the Later Roman Empire. We welcome applications from all specializations within Ancient History, but we are primarily aiming to complement our current profile with expertise in Classical Greek History, and/or social and economic history. Experience and affinity with interdisciplinary approaches to Ancient History is a prerequisite.
