If your educational and research interest comprise the two classical languages, if you have a proven track record in interdisciplinary research or research collaboration with colleagues of cultural-historical studies of the classical world, if your leadership style is encouraging for the group members to get the best out of themselves, and you want to participate in local and (inter)national cooperation, we encourage you to apply.

As a Full professor, 60% of your time is for teaching & educational management and 40% for research & societal impact.


We encourage you to apply if you have:

• evidenced experience in teaching and in contributing substantially to BA/MA degree programs of Classics (with courses in one, preferably both classical languages)

• fluency in English (C1 level of the CEFR) and Dutch or willingness to learn the Dutch language within two years (to at least C1 level of the CEFR – for reading and listening).

And if you are:

• communicating a clear and innovative vision of academic education in general and transcending your own discipline. You have shown to be able to convert this vision into your teaching practice, developing and improving both the content and the didactic methods of the courses, together with the ensuing tests (also online)
• a clearly visible and (internationally) acknowledged expert in your field of research
• a team player with good communication skills
• capable of translating research and teaching to a general audience, thus creating societal impact
• contributing to the organization of research and teaching in Classics, for example by participating in committees or working groups
• willing to fulfill the requirements for the University Teaching Qualification and academic leadership courses with the ability to reflect on your leadership qualities and style
• expected to submit (an) application(s) for external funding of a (major) research project (within 3 years after your appointment).
