Updated: 3 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 21 Nov 2022

The Arts, Culture and Media and Media Studies programmes of the University of Groningen are looking for a highly motivated full-time Assistant Professor in Film and Media Studies (in Dutch: universitair docent).
The candidate is expected to have a broad expertise in film history, film theory, and film analysis and audiovisual culture. The position combines teaching (60%) and research (40%): while we expect a willingness to teach in a wide range of areas, the research profile of the candidate can be very specific, adding to the already existing expertise of the film and media studies staff or opening it to new perspectives.

We are particularly interested in candidates with an expertise in one or more of the following areas (in no particular order):

- Screen acting
- Cognitive approach to audiovisual media
- New media technologies and the production of audiovisual content.

The successful candidate will teach in our Bachelor’s programme in ‘Arts, Culture and Media’ as well as in our Media Studies programme. The language of instruction is English.

The successful candidate will become a staff member of the Arts, Culture and Media department. Our departments’ highly international staff comprises colleagues from The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the US, Canada, Mexico, Hungary, Greece, Israel, Italy, and Denmark.

Research is conducted within the Groningen Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG: https://www.rug.nl/research/icog/?lang=en ). ICOG provides ample support in applying for grants with national and international funding agencies. There is also an annual travel budget for conference participation and other research-related trips.

The successful applicant is expected to:

- teach and supervise students in the departments’ undergraduate and graduate programmes
- participate actively in curriculum development and in the design and administration of course modules
- carry out and generate high-quality research in audiovisual media
- pursue research grants and other forms of external funding
- participate actively in international research networks and build international collaborations
- participate in the activities of the departments’ research centre.
