Leiden University invites applications for a fulltime Assistant Professorship in Modern Middle-Eastern Studies. Appointment will be fixed-term from September 2013 through August 2016, with the possibility of extensions of up to three years, and of tenure thereafter. Requirements include a PhD degree. Applications by candidates near completion of the PhD will be considered. We seek a scholar with expertise in the economy and the politics of the modern and contemporary Middle East, with due regard for social, cultural, and historical context. Research specialization is open, but we are particularly interested in scholars working on the Gulf region and its regional, transregional, and global contexts (e.g. South and Southeast Asia). Review of applications from 29 March. Leiden University aims to employ more women in areas where they are underrepresented. Women are therefore especially invited to apply. Candidates from outside the Netherlands may be eligible for a substantial tax break. Before submitting your application or query, please read the full CFA at
