Deadline: 31 gennaio 2019

The Faculty of Arts, Charles University (Prague) invites applications for the position of a Visiting Professor in Social Sciences and/or Area Studies.

The applicant must be an internationally recognized scholar in his research area, and is expected to teach two 90-minute courses per week at advanced undergraduate (M.A.) level.

All teaching will be in English, knowledge of the Czech language is not required. A teaching assistant for both courses will be provided by the Faculty.

The position is funded by the Czech Operational Programme Research, Development and Education, project no. CZ.02.2.69/0.0/0.0/16_015/0002362. The funding is available for one semester (5 months), starting on September 1st, 2019. The gross monthly salary is 84.000 CZK (approx. 3230 EUR).
