Professorship (W3) in Slavery and Dependency Studies
University of Bonn
The Faculty of Arts at the University of Bonn invites applications for a
W3-Professorship in Slavery and Dependency Studies
The professorship is to be filled as soon as possible.
The post is associated with the newly established Cluster of Excellence "Beyond
Slavery and Freedom. Asymmetrical Dependencies in Pre-modern Societies"
(www.dependency.uni-bonn.de). We are looking for applicants whose research
focuses on forms of durable, asymmetrical individual, social and spatial dependency
in societies (before the 20th century). By this we mean dependencies which are
primarily connected to labour (slavery, serfdom, debt bondage etc.) or linked to
wider social dynamics (e. g. tribute, punishment, religion etc.).
Preference will be given to applicants interested in the history of concepts. A
research focus on one of the following regions is desirable: the Transatlantic
area, the Mediterranean, or the Indian Ocean. The successful candidate will be
expected to take a leading role in the development of the Cluster of Excellence
and its study programs.
Applicants should have a university degree (master, magister or state examination)
and PhD as well as a habilitation or equivalent publications in subjects relevant
to the field of durable asymmetrical dependencies. The successful applicant
will be expected to have experience in leading/being a member of interdisciplinary
research teams and in working internationally. Teaching experience and the
successful acquisition of third-party research funding are expected.
The University of Bonn is committed to diversity and equal opportunity. It is certified
as a family-friendly university and aims to increase the number of women
employed in areas where women are underrepresented and to promote their
careers. To that end, it urges women with relevant qualifications to apply.
Applications will be handled in accordance with the Landesgleichstellungsgesetz
(State Equality Act). Applications by suitable candidates with a certified disability
or equivalent status are particularly welcome.
The University of Bonn expects that the successful applicant will move to Bonn
or to the region.
Applicants are asked to send their documents electronically as one PDFfile
of max. 15 MB (CV, list of publications, list of taught courses, teaching
evaluations if available, copies of university certificates and a brief summary of
previous and current research work) to the Dean of the Faculty of Arts/Dekan
der Philosophischen Fakultät at the University of Bonn (email@example.com).
The deadline for applications is 16th December 2019.
