Professor of Ancient Egyptian Religion (by special appointment) (0.2 FTE)
Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies
Vacancy number: 21.03.19
Application deadline: 22 April 2019
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.
It is this double focus on both ancient religions/Egyptian religions and the Coptic tradition that the board of the foundation would like to see continued in the years to come. Suitable candidates who work in related fields of ancient religious history will also be considered.
