In this way, you will contribute to the education of the new generation and to new insights in your field.
The Hispanic Studies Section at Radboud University is looking for an Assistant Professor of Hispanic Cultural Studies, with a focus on Latin America or the Global Hispanophone and preferably with additional expertise in visual culture. As an Assistant Professor you will be part of the Hispanic Studies Section of the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at the Faculty of Arts and participate in its educational programme on all levels.
You are an inspiring teacher with a strong international research profile who demonstrates a global perspective on current academic and societal developments.

You will be closely involved with the organisation of the Hispanic Studies programme and assist in shaping its future trajectories.

We currently have approximatively 2,500 students, enrolled in three departments: the Department of History, Art History and Classics, the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, and the Department of Language and Communication. We aim to contribute to a more sustainable and inclusive world, which is why we especially seek applications from candidates who bring diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and skills that will be assets to our study programmes and research profiles.
