Job description

As Assistant Professor of Metaphysics and Philosophical Anthropology, 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 focus on the post-Kantian European tradition. 

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 follow the Research Master's programme). Furthermore, you will be involved in the development of the educational programme and of courses for the Bachelor's and Master's programmes.

Your research expertise should complement that of the current staff members, and you will conduct research in line with the research themes of the Center for Contemporary European 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. We ask
  • You have a PhD in contemporary European (continental) philosophy.
  • You are knowledgeable in the domains of metaphysics and philosophical anthropology and well-acquainted with the European philosophical tradition, complementing the expertise of the current staff members in these fields.
  • You are a dedicated teacher and have university teaching experience in philosophy (preferably possessing a University Teaching Qualification (BKO) or a similar qualification, otherwise you will be asked to obtain this qualification within two years).
  • You are a highly competent researcher, and this is reflected in your publication record, which will be appropriate to your career stage.
  • You are proficient in Dutch (C2 level) and English (C1 level) or are willing to obtain these proficiencies within two to four years.
We are

The Department of Metaphysics and Philosophical Anthropology and its Center for Contemporary European Philosophy form the Netherlands' main academic environments for teaching and research in post-Kantian European philosophy. Our staff contribute to the development of theories in present-day post-Kantian European philosophy, both historically and systematically, concerning several major topics from metaphysics to philosophical anthropology. They do so using methods and perspectives mainly (but not solely) derived from phenomenology, hermeneutics and psychoanalysis. 

The Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religion Sciences is a compact, ambitious division with approximately 160 staff and almost 900 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.
