#JobOpening Assistant Professor for Digital Humanities in the Study of Religion – Ruhr University Bochum

The Center for Religious Studies at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, seeks a scholar for an appointment as Assistant Professor (W1, tenure track W2). The future position holder is expected to represent the field of Digital Humanities in the study of religion in research and teaching. In particular, the aim is to further develop research questions of the Digital Humanities in relation to religion and to introduce the methods of the Digital Humanities into religious studies education.

A background in religious studies is not a prerequisite. Given a general interest in getting involved in religion-related collaborative research, applications from people with a background in digital humanities or other humanities, cultural studies or social science subjects are welcome. Due to the interdisciplinary context in Bochum, the professorship offers a particular opportunity to strengthen the area of non-European and/or historical languages in the Digital Humanities and to stimulate the field of #MultilingualDH.
