Central European University, Budapest announces a search for Lecturer

CAS 04/07/2007

Central European University, Budapest announces a search for a full-time Professor or Associate Professor in its integrated Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology. 

Central European University (www.ceu.hu) is a graduate research-intensive university specializing primarily in the social sciences, located in Budapest, Hungary and accredited in the United States and Hungary. CEU's primary mission is to promote academic excellence, state of the art research and civic commitment, so as to contribute to the development of open societies in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and other emerging democracies. CEU offers both master's and doctoral programs, and it enrolls about 1000 students from more than 60 countries, including all former communist countries. The teaching staff consists of around 100 faculty members from more than 30 countries. The language of instruction is English.

CEU promotes a comparative, interdisciplinary scholarly approach that integrates the Central and Eastern European region and the former Soviet Union into a wider, global perspective. CEU faculty members are encouraged to engage in high-level research and the university supports such research through appropriate institutional mechanisms. Paying systematic attention to the policy implications of the research conducted at CEU is also encouraged.

The candidates for this position should be dynamic international scholars with an outstanding record of publication and teaching in sociology and/or social anthropology. They should have thought critically and reflexively about the current state of anthropology and sociology in relation to each other in terms of theory and methods and they should be eloquent in placing their specialization in the broader context of the social sciences. We particularly welcome applicants with a strong profile in historical comparative research. Thematic specialization is open but should reflect, in approach and priorities, current global realities. Inclusion of non-European subjects/areas is seen as an advantage. The ideal candidate connects local and global perspectives and easily straddles the divides between anthropology and sociology. In addition to an excellent record of refereed publications in scholarly journals and with recognized academic publishers, the candidates are expected to have a recognized international profile. A record of research projects and grants is an advantage.

The initial appointment is for 4 years and is renewable. The teaching load is 12 credits (1 credit equals 12 classroom hours) a year plus supervision of MA theses and doctoral dissertations. Salary and benefits are dependent upon qualifications and experience. The compensation package is subject to Hungarian taxation regulations. The university assists its employees who are not citizens or permanent residents of Hungary in order to obtain a work permit. The position is open from August 2008.

Please send applications to Rector of CEU, c/o dr. Judit Pallos, Human Resources Office, Central European University, H-1051 Budapest, Nádor u. 9., Hungary (Fax: + 36 (1) 235-6135, e-mail: ). The application package should include: C.V., a list of publications, a sample publication, a short statement of the applicant's vision of shaping the research and graduate teaching environment at CEU, and the names and addresses of at least three referees.

The deadline for applications is August 31 2007.

CEU is an equal opportunity employer.
