The Faculty of Arts builds on a long-standing tradition going back four centuries. Our mission is to be a top-ranking faculty providing both excellent education and world-class research, with a strong international orientation as well as firm roots in the northern Netherlands. We build on knowledge and share the benefits with society. We are part of a broad, modern and international institution, educating over 5.000 Dutch and international students to become ambitious, articulate and independent individuals. We are a diverse and hardworking team of 700 staff members.
You will be working in the Department of History. We are an active and international teaching and research group comprising some 45 people covering all the chronological and thematic fields within the historical sciences. You will prepare, monitor and teach (new) course units on Economic and Social History and Environmental History. You will produce research and supervise undergraduate, graduate and PhD students. You will develop new ideas in research and education, and secure funding (independently or jointly) for future research. You will collaborate with colleagues within the History programmes, as well as with other departments in the Faculty of Arts (including within externally funded projects), with colleagues from Spatial and Economic Sciences and with international guest researchers.
You will participate in the Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (https://www.rug.nl/research/icog/).
