The Department of Historical Studies at Central European University invites applications for an Assistant Professorship position in Historical Studies and Digital Humanities. Regional and chronological specializations are open, but applicants should demonstrate the ability to engage in research on transregional phenomena in Eurasian history between c. 800 and c. 1850, based on expertise in one or more regional/local languages. Scholars working on the Islamicate and/or Persianate world and/or South Asia are particularly encouraged to apply. 

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to teaching digital tools and methods in historical analysis, as well as in the area of their research specialization. Possible thematic concentrations and methodological approaches may include (but are not limited to) environmental history, material culture, manuscript studies, etc. The candidate will join and contribute to the development of the new Department of Historical Studies, which will integrate the strengths of CEU’s existing Departments of History and Medieval Studies and launch in September 2024. The candidate is expected to have a track record of research excellence and ability to collaborate with faculty across historical disciplines. Please see the international faculty profiles of the new Department of Historical Studies here and here.  

The department recently won a prestigious Cluster of Excellence grant for a project on “EurAsian Transformations” (in partnership with the Austrian Academy of Sciences, University of Vienna, and University of Innsbruck). The candidate will be expected to contribute to the Cluster, which will entail multi-year research and teaching on the history of Eurasia as a geographic entity and imagined geostrategic space, a site of imperial rivalries, and a vital place of intersection for cultures, religions, and languages. The department prides itself on being a vibrant and welcoming home for young scholars from all backgrounds and origins and is excited to offer this opportunity to begin a career at a university that welcomes students from over 100 countries. 

Your duties and responsibilities: 

  • Developing and teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, supervising BA, MA, and PhD theses in the above areas. The department serves a global student population. A firm commitment to inclusive instruction and mentoring for a diverse international student body is expected.

A PhD in History or related disciplines or in Digital Humanities in hand by the start of employment as well as a track record of internationally recognized publications commensurate with the career stage.
