|Institution Type:||College / University|
The European University Institute seeks to appoint an academic of recognised international standing, with a distinguished record of scholarly publications and experience in postgraduate and/or post-doctoral teaching and supervision, as Director of the Max Weber Post-Doctoral programme.
The Max Weber Programme is one of the largest post-doctoral programmes in the social sciences and humanities, preparing promising junior scholars for their future international academic careers. The post-doctoral fellows share a common programme of training in research, teaching and other professional development skills while leaving ample time for their individual research agendas. The programme operates in close association with the departments (Economics, History and Civilisation, Law, and Social and Political Sciences) and, as appropriate, with the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) of the European University Institute.
The Director of the Programme will lead the development of this innovative post-doctoral training programme. The Director will also be expected to play a leadership role in building the Institute’s programme on academic career development for doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in a context of academic, linguistic and cultural mobility.
The Institute is looking for candidates of senior professorial status. Candidates should have an active research profile as well as experience in teaching and supervising postgraduate and/or post-doctoral students, an outstanding academic record and managerial experience in the field of higher education and/or advanced research. Knowledge of at least 2 European languages is a requirement.
The successful candidate will be expected to take up a full-time position in September 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The contract is for 5 years, renewable for 3 years. The Institute is an equal opportunity employer.
