Le Center for Religious Studies (CERES), Ruhr-Universität Bochum, ouvre un poste de professeur de religion musulmane passée et présente pour le 1er octobre 2013 (ou plus tôt).
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany’s leading research universities. The University draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. The RUB is a vital institution in the Ruhr Area, which has been se-lected as European Capital of Culture for the year 2010.
Applicants are expected to cover the entire field of the history of Islamic religion within the BA and MA in Religious Studies, to build up and develop a focus in the history of Islamic religion within the master programme, to participate in the promotion of young researchers within the context of Religious Studies and to coordinate their own research with the focus of the Kaete Hamburger Kolleg “Dynamics in the History of Religions between Asia and Europe”, which is dedicated to research on religious contacts and transfers. They should also integrate themselves into the Department of History.
Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. habilitation) and evidence of special aptitude are just as much required as the willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the RUB and to generally get involved in university processes according to RUB’s mission statement, in particular the coordination of the Religious Studies programmes, and the collaboration in the various research areas of CERES, in particular within the Kaete Hamburger Kolleg. A high commitment to teaching is indispensable, as is the readiness to participate in interdisciplinary academic work as well as the willingness and ability to attract external funding.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is an equal opportunities employer.
Complete applications including a list of publications, an exposé on candidates’ research profile and a list of classes taught to date should be sent to the Dean of the Department of History of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, D-44780 Bochum no later than 23 January 2013. Further information on the Religious Studies programme, the Kaete Hamburger Kolleg “Dynamics in the History of Religions between Asia and Europe” and other questions is available at http://www.ceres.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/en/.
