The Faculty of Arts at Radboud University is looking for five postdoctoral researchers. As a postdoctoral researcher, you will be a member of the Centre for Language Studies (CLS) or of the Radboud Institute for Culture & History (RICH). In addition, you will be a member of one of the three departments of the Faculty of Arts: History, Art History and Antiquity (GKO), Modern Languages and Cultures (MTC), or Language and Communication (LandC).
As a postdoctoral researcher, you will conduct research in one of the following three fields: (i) human AI, including digital humanities, (ii) cultural heritage and societal change, including historical studies, or (iii) language and culture, including linguistics (the three themes of the Dutch Sector Plan for the Humanities). A combination of these fields is of course also possible. Within these fields, there is a preference for research on language variation; AI and language and communication; functional low literacy; digital humanities; environmental humanities; and/or non-western approaches to language and culture (the six 'growth areas' of our two research institutes). To give you an idea of what we have in mind, here follow some examples of possible postdoctoral projects (but of course you can also submit your own suggestions). For postdocs to be affiliated with CLS: you might be interested in developing and testing applications (e.g. games) to improve language learning for both foreign language learners and low literates, or, based on empirical data (collected in experiments or from corpora), study synchronic language variation, or investigate how linguistic and cultural knowledge can improve applications. For postdocs to be affiliated with RICH: you might consider historical or cultural studies addressing cultural heritage in relation to societal or environmental change, possibly using digital humanities approaches and/or methodologies. Or you might want to inquire into the digitalisation of culture in relation to the cultural sector (e.g. the use of digitalisation by cultural institutions) or study digital cultures surrounding indigenous cultures (e.g. representations on social media and for tourist purposes). We also welcome proposals in the field of language and gender, diversity and inclusion.
Your research will be embedded in CLS or RICH. You will participate in their research groups and contribute to the institutes in general. You will set up research collaborations on these topics with the present staff of these research institutes. You will publish about your research in highly qualified journals, conference proceedings, or edited volumes. You will be expected to teach a limited number of courses in our Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree programmes (approx. 20% of your appointment).
We have in total five positions available.
Fixed-term contract: It concerns a temporary position for 2 years.
