Today’s world requires critical thinkers, people who can define new directions for research and teaching that respond to the changes and challenges of our times. As an Assistant Professor of Cultural History at Radboud University, you will join a diverse group of dedicated scholars, shape the field of cultural history, and flourish in a friendly and vibrant academic community.

The European Cultural History section is welcoming applications from specialists in modern cultural history (since 1800) who will solidify and complement our profile and strengths in research, teaching and societal impact. We are especially interested in new colleagues with an expertise in one or more of the following themes: leisure, sport and/or consumer culture; migration and/or ethnicity; memory and heritage studies; environmental and/or rural history. We also hope to expand our horizon both within and beyond Europe.

As an assistant professor you will be part of the European Cultural History section (nine tenured staff, seven PhD candidates), embedded in the Department of History, Art History and Classics. You will teach general and specialised courses in the Dutch and English BA programmes in History, the MA programme in Geschiedenis & Actualiteit (in Dutch) and the Research Master’s programme in Historical, Literary and Cultural Studies (in English). You will supervise students writing their papers and theses, participate in educational support activities such as tutoring, and actively contribute to the development of the curriculum.

Your research will be embedded in the Radboud Institute for Culture & History (RICH). You are a productive and active researcher who is developing research projects, writing, publishing and collaborating on themes that contribute to the central questions of RICH research groups and the Cultural History section. You will seek external funding and will be actively involved in public engagement activities. You will participate in working groups, committees and/or project groups within the department, programme or faculty.

Up to 60% of your working time will be allocated to teaching (including management tasks) and 40% to research (excluding external funding).
