Job description

FASoS is seeking a full professor who is an expert in teaching and research in the field of digital arts and culture studies with an emphasis on the concrete artistic and cultural practices in which digital technologies are used, and with expertise in interdisciplinary approaches and digital methodologies to investigate those practices.

The candidate is expected to develop international research projects and to attract external funding.

S/he will contribute to the teaching and coordination of courses and supervision of internships, projects and theses in the BA and MA programmes of FASoS. The division of teaching and research duties follows the regular division used at the Faculty of 60% teaching and management and 40% research. The research time can be extended through external fundraising.

The candidate should display outstanding quality in research, strong leadership qualities, a well-developed research profile which is recognised in the field; s/he has a relevant international network and is open to an interdisciplinary approach.
S/he should be an experienced and enthusiastic teacher with a demonstrated ability in thesis supervision, teaching coordination roles, course development and teaching international classrooms. S/he is able to stimulate student learning and to maximize student participation in our system of small-scale problem based learning.
S/he is a scholar with a thorough background in one of the humanities disciplines (e.g. (new) media studies (including film & television), art history, philosophy or cultural studies) and with extensive expertise in academic research and teaching in the field of digital arts and culture.
Important markers of this quality in research and leadership include publications of original work in highly regarded journals; monographs and edited volumes published with prestigious (university) presses; acquisition of funding from national, European and other research funding agencies both as individual and as team player; proven skills in talent-scouting and in supervision and coaching of students, Ph.D. students and post-docs.
The candidate should be ready to fulfil an important managerial role in the faculty, therefore having strong leadership qualities is deemed crucial.

What we have to offer

The candidate will be appointed as a full professor for 5-years. During this period, the selected candidate will have ample opportunity to demonstrate his/her talents, an entrepreneurial approach, a constructive attitude, and managerial qualities and performance. Under the condition of a positive assessment the position will be extended in a tenure contract.
(A tenured contract is possible for candidates who already hold tenure.)

Remuneration will be according to standard salary levels, depending on education and relevant work experience. This implies a minimum of € 5.059,-- and a maximum of € 7.766,-- gross per month for a full-time appointment of 38 hours per week (salary scale 14-HL2, Dutch Universities Conditions of Employment). Each year the standard salary is supplemented with a holiday allowance of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%.
