The successful candidates are expected to perform teaching and student supervising tasks, mainly for the bilingual Bachelor’s programme in History. This multidisciplinary programme aims to develop an understanding of present societies through courses about global history, economic history, international relations and socio-cultural history. Students explore both the uniqueness of certain events and long-term patterns. At the same time, courses on theory and methods further ensure that they become aware of similarities and differences in the past. Electives on, for example, urban history, international business, historical games, and the fashion industry prepare students to analyse modern society as a highly qualified graduate with broad academic knowledge and equipped with practical skills.
Rotterdam’s unique approach to history is clearly visible in years 2 and 3 of the bachelor’s programme. Students can choose from four focus areas: Economic History; International Relations; Cultural History; Social History. We are aiming at lecturers with either a ‘social/cultural history profile or an economic/political history profile.
