Bewerbungsschluss: 15. März 2021
The position at grade W3 (full professorship/chair) is permanent, with the legal status of a civil servant for life (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit). The University of Regensburg is concentrating and institutionalising Area Studies (Regional Studies) research in an emerging Department for Interdisciplinary and Multiscalary Area Studies (DIMAS). This department advances the theoretical and methodological development of Area Studies; it emerges from the Center for International and Transnational Area Studies (CITAS), which was founded in 2017 as a platform for Regional Studies in Regensburg. DIMAS strengthens the existing regional foci of Area Studies in Regensburg—Southeastern-, Eastern-, and Western Europe, North and Latin America—or complements them with research in additional extended areas. As an Area Studies institution, it deals with central questions of the constitution of the modern world in its various regional manifestations. The successful candidate is expected to work actively on the development of this department.
