Dec. 5, 2019

The University of Nova Gorica announces the open position for the dean of the School of Humanities.
Deadline for applications: 27. 12. 2019

The mission of the School of Humanities of the University of Nova Gorica is to present the traditional and new (those rarely presented so far) humanistic insights, founded on contemporary, internationally relevant scientific publications, an incorporation of these contents into the Slovene national space, and an encouragement of multiculturalism. An added value of all the programmes offered at the School of Humanties is the contents that are highly relevant for an intercultural dialogue within the context of the national borders territory in which the School is situated. Within this region, a humanistic study is of vital significance, since it helps promote an understanding of the past which used to be a factor which made mutual life of the peoples living in the region difficult.

  • meet the requirements for leading research projects;
  • have good organizational and leadership skills;
  • have at least five years’ work experience;
  • have a knowledge of Slovenian and English to at least C1 level.

Candidates selected for the shortlist will be invited to submit an expansive vision for development of the faculty, both in terms of education and research.

The position will be available immediately after conclusion of the selection process. Employment contracts will be concluded for full-time working hours for a fixed term of four years, with the possibility of re-appointment.

The following must be attached to applications for all the positions:

  • curriculum vitae;
  • evidence of meeting the requirements;
