Ruhr University Bochum / Germany, East Asian Studies (Fakultät für Ostasienwissenschaften)
Chair in Literature and Language of China (Professor, W 3 Salary Bracket)
|Institution Type:||College / University|
The 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 located 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 East Asian Studies
invites applications for the position of a
Professor in Literature and Language of China (W3 salary bracket; previous Chair: Prof. Raoul David Findeisen)
to start as soon as possible.
The future holder of the post will represent the subject in research and teaching.
The applicant should further have a proven record of academic excellence in one of the two fields of Chinese literature or language including pre-modern forms of language and literature.
The future Chair will also assume responsibility for the Master of Education in Chinese, for the Richard-Wilhelm Translation Centre (Richard-Wilhelm-Übersetzungszentrum), and the Taiwan Research Unit.
The future chair is expected to demonstrate a very good track record of establishing and maintaining working relations with Chinese, Taiwanese and other international research institutions and universities.
Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. habilitation; current position as an Associate-Professor, Reader or similar) and evidence of a good record in academic teaching 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 willingness to master German as a language of instruction is expected.
We expect furthermore:
- high commitment in teaching
- readiness to participate in interdisciplinary academic work
- willingness and ability to attract external funding
- a strong publication record in international academic journals
- experience in research and teaching in East Asia
- ability to cooperate with non-university institutions
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is an equal opportunities employer.
