The Department of History and Art History seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor in cultural history specialised in digital humanities. Applicants should have a firm grounding in European cultural history and the theory and methodology of digital humanities; they must also have a proven working knowledge of digital humanities tools relevant to the broad historical domain. The assistant professor will be expected to engage with colleagues and students within and outside the cultural history section as well as beyond the department itself. Research work must complement that of existing staff in the Cultural History group. Applicants should show how their research will contribute to the group’s research focus on Western modernity and to the university’s strategic research area Institutions for Open Societies. Female candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
