Vacature: University Lectureship in the Economies of modern Southeast Asia, Leiden University

The Faculty of Humanities at Leiden University invites applications for a fulltime University Lectureship in the economies of modern Southeast Asia. We welcome applications by scholars specialized in economic history or political economy, whose work reflects sensitivity to historical and socio-cultural context, and the ability to position the economies of Southeast Asia in Asian and global configurations. While the position will be anchored in Southeast Asian Studies, teaching will also include an undergraduate comparative South & Southeast Asia course. Appointment will be fixed-term from January 2015 through December 2016, with the possibility of extensions of up to four years, and of a permanent position thereafter. Leiden University aims to employ more women in areas where they are underrepresented. Women are therefore especially invited to apply.

Vacancy number: 14-170.

Applications must be received by 18 August 2014. Campus interviews are tentatively planned for late September or early October. Queries to Maghiel van Crevel (m.van.crevel@hum.leidenuniv.nl), with cc to David Henley (d.e.f.henley@hum.leidenuniv.nl). Applications should be in English, and be submitted to the SEA economies Search Committee at vacatureslias@hum.leidenuniv.nl, with the items listed below included in this order in *one* PDF document named ‘FAMILY NAME – Given name – 14-170’:

  • A CV including education and employment history, publications, and courses taught
