Appel à candidature : professeur d’histoire de l’art contemporain (Allemagne, Bochum, Université de la Rühr)

Ruhr_Uni_CrestThe 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 selected as European Capital of Culture for the year 2010.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum – Faculty of History – invites applications for the position of a Professor (W2) for the History of Modern Art with a Focus on Cultural and Gender History to start  at the next possible date.
Applicants should be able to cover the History of Modern Art from the Enlightenment onwards in both research and teaching, with particular attention to current methodology and the formation of theories especially in the area of Gender Studies. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in teaching the University’s interdisciplinary Master Programme “Gender Studies”.
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. A high commitment to teaching is essential, as is the readiness to participate in interdisciplinary academic work and the willingness and ability to attract third party funding. The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is an equal opportunities employer.
Applications including a CV, degree certificates as well as lists of publications, classes taught and grants received should be sent by email to the Dekan of the Faculty of History of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Email:,  no later than 15 September 2014.
