Ruhr-Universität Bochum 
The Institute of Philosophy II, Faculty of Philosophy and Educational Sciences of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, invites applications for the position of a
Professor (tenure) for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy (Salary Scale W2) to start on 1 April 2019
The candidate is expected to establish a sustainable research program, be capable to produce and publish original research, be an effective teacher and mentor of both undergraduate and graduate students, and engage in institutional and professional service. We are looking for a scholar with an internationally visible research profile that complements the existing research expertise of the department. The future holder of the post will represent the subject ‘Ancient Philosophy’ or ‘Medieval Philosophy’ in research and both areas in teaching. Teaching is to be held in the context of B.A., M.A. and PhD studies in Philosophy and in the context of optional courses of other programs which involve philosophy. Courses for teaching should be offered in both areas, in ancient and medieval philosophy. The willingness to hold the obligatory lecture “Introduction to Ancient and Medieval Philosophy”, to be held in German and on a regular basis, is particularly expected.
Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. Habilitation) or significant post-doctoral research contributions and teaching experience are as much required as the willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the RUB. 
We expect:
- outstanding international research activities in ancient or medieval philosophy
- the willingness and the ability to combine significant research in the area of ancient or medieval philosophy with modern developments in  theoretical philosophy     
- strong  commitment to academic teaching at graduate and undergraduate level;
- willingness and ability to attract external funding;
-  the readiness to engage in establishing and developing international research activities

British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships at Warwick's Centre for the Study of the Renaissance 
Expressions of interest are invited for the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, tenable in the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance, University of Warwick. These awards are intended to offer opportunities for outstanding early career researchers to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment that will develop their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent lecturing posts by the end of the Fellowship. The primary emphasis is on completion of a significant piece of publishable research, which will be assisted by full membership of an academic community of established scholars working in similar fields.
The Centre is among the most active Renaissance institutes internationally. It is keen to encourage new research and support postdoctoral projects. With that in mind, potential applicants for this scheme are invited to send a 2-page CV and an outline of their project to the Centre’s Administrator, Jayne Sweet ( and to the Centre’s Director, Professor David Lines ( by 12 noon on Thursday 13 September 2018.

The British Academy’s deadlines for the scheme are tight: candidates whose initial applications to the Centre are not already well developed are not likely to be supported.
Competition timetables, eligibility requirements, notes for the scheme, and answers to Frequently Asked Questions are available at
