In its pursuit of academic excellence, the Faculty of Arts is committed to creating an inclusive working environment and therefore welcomes applications from all qualified candidates, regardless of background.

The position 

The Department of History and Classical Studies at Aarhus University offers a dynamic, collegial and internationally orientated research and teaching environment. The position is an open one and we welcome applications from candidates working in any field related to the department’s current strengths (see below). The professor will take a leading role in the future development of our thriving research and educational environment. Candidates will be able to document excellence in historical research and an outstanding publications record. Evidence of success in gaining external research funding and experience of managing research projects is an advantage, as is the ability to nurture international collaboration. The professor will also be expected to take an active role in supervising and supporting early career scholars, in knowledge dissemination and in teaching at BA and MA level.

The successful applicant will be expected to take a leading role in the core research activities of the Department of History and Classical Studies and the multi-disciplinary research activities of the School of Culture and Society, the Faculty of Arts, and beyond. In the application, applicants should explicitly present their vision for the development of research and research training in their field or sub-field. This should include a research plan for the next five years demonstrating how the applicant will consolidate, develop and/or expand existing research specialisations in the department. The department has the ambition to expand its external research funding, and candidates are invited to include proposals for how this might be achieved in the application.

Past research achievements will be assessed based on the active research time available to the applicants, so your application should specify any career breaks or periods of leave you have had.

Education 

Candidates should document extensive university teaching and supervision experience, including evidence of active involvement in the development of educational programmes and environments in history. The professor will be expected to teach and supervise on all the degree programmes in history (BA, MA and PhD), and to take an active role in their development.

We emphasise the importance of maintaining a dedicated and respectful relationship between staff and students. As part of their teaching portfolio, applicants should demonstrate and exemplify their commitment to participatory teaching initiatives and student involvement.
