Location: Nijmegen

As a researcher you will be contributing to the Mysticism & Devotio Moderna project and investigate a specific aspect of the influence of the late medieval Devotio Moderna on the mystical and spiritual traditions in the modern and contemporary eras (17th – 20th century). Though not being explicitly mystical itself, the Devotio Moderna had a significant impact on the variety of later mystical and spiritual discourses. This also goes for a considerable part of 19th and 20th century artistic poetics. You will work towards a scientific book publication about a specific topic within that field of research.
Please add to your application letter a short description (350 words) of the research project you plan to realise at the Titus Brandsma Institute. You will not only conduct research. Education will also be part of your remit. Education in various forms: developing and participating in university courses, chair reading groups, and in-company courses, all initiated and founded on the basis of your expertise and research.
