Due to the approaching departure of the current chair holder, the board of the Jozef M.A. Janssen Foundation invites applications for the endowed chair of Ancient Egyptian Religion. This chair was established in 1987 for the study of the ‘History of the Antique Religions, particularly that of Ancient Egypt' at the University of Nijmegen, as Radboud University was then called. In recent years, the chair holder closely collaborated with the Institute of Eastern Christian Studies (IECS/IVOC), which is based at the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies, linking the founding discipline of the Chair, i.e. Egyptian religions, with the study of the Coptic language and the history and culture of Coptic Christianity. For both fields, the chair holder cooperates with scholars from the Faculty of Arts.

The board of the Jozef M.A. Janssen Foundation is therefore looking for a candidate who:
