The Faculty of Arts
is committed to knowledge production with a significant scientific and social impact. With over 500 academic and support staff, we teach and conduct research in the fields of history and art, languages and cultures, and linguistics and communication, using innovative methodologies and working in close collaboration between the disciplines. Our research is embedded in two research institutes: the Centre for Language Studies
(CLS) and the Radboud Institute for Culture & History
(RICH). We currently have approximately 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.
Many CLS researchers closely collaborate with colleagues at related research institutes on the Radboud University campus, in particular the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. You can also benefit from the presence of a large and active Artificial Intelligence department at the Faculty of Social Sciences.
You will be integrated into one of three CLS research groups
: 'Language and Speech Technology', 'Grammar and Cognition', or 'Cognitive and Developmental Aspects of Multilingualism', but are also encouraged to join the meetings of the other two groups. Your direct supervisor will be Dr Stefan Frank of the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
