As Assistant Professor of Ancient History you will be part of the Department of History, Art History and Classics and participate at all levels of its educational programme (in Dutch and English). You will teach BA/MA courses in the History programme, with emphasis on Ancient History, as well as BA courses in Medieval History.

You are expected to have an active interest in research, which should be reflected in new initiatives, acquisition of external funding, and involvement in the faculty research programme and in the Ancient and Medieval History expertise group. Your research must align with the research objectives of the expertise group and the central themes of one of the research groups within RICH. You will participate in and chair working groups, committees and/or project groups within the department or faculty.
