Radboud University is looking for a
Assistant Professor of Metaphysics and Philosophical Anthropology
Recently, the Dutch government invested in academic research by means of three sector plans for the Social Sciences and Humanities on the themes of (i) Human AI, (ii) Cultural and religious heritage and (iii) Migrant inclusion and wellbeing. The current position is part of the theme 'Cultural and religious heritage'.
You will be a member of a department whose primary goals are to offer education and conduct research in the fields of metaphysics and philosophical anthropology, with a specific research focus on questions related to cultural heritage and continental philosophy.
You will teach courses at all levels in the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in Philosophy, as well as in study programmes offered at other faculties. You will primarily teach in the fields of metaphysics and philosophical anthropology. You may also be required to teach other disciplines in philosophy as well as philosophy courses for students with a non-philosophy major. Your duties will also include individual supervision and tutoring of students (e.g. students who are writing their Bachelor's or Master's theses or taking the Research Master's programme). Furthermore, you will be involved in the development of the educational programme.
Your research is devoted to questions concerning cultural heritage and how it impacts identity formation, sense-making and diversity. Your research profile fits with the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy and its emphasis on continental philosophy. The Center is a very cohesive research unit, whose members share their research in work-in-progress meetings and co-teach, co-publish and co-organise conferences. Besides collaborating with your fellow researchers, you will be involved in further developing the Center's research line and acquiring externally funded research projects.
The Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religion Sciences is a compact, ambitious division with approximately 180 staff and over 1,000 students from the Netherlands and abroad. Our education programme includes several top-notch degree programmes in both in-depth disciplinary fields of study and interdisciplinary and interfaculty studies. The faculty has innovative education and research programmes with a strong focus on current societal issues.
Our faculty is committed to equal opportunities for all. We stand for an inclusive community and believe that diversity contributes to the quality of teaching and research. We therefore particularly welcome staff from different backgrounds, whose perspectives and alternative ways of thinking may contribute to the diversity of our faculty.
