The specialization and period are open, and should complement the existing faculty, and fit with the research foci of the Center. The appointment is initially for three years, with the option of extension. For more information please see:

Dear colleagues,

I recently posted this job ad on H-Net.

https://www.h-net.org/jobs/job_display.php?id=56364

It has come to my attention that there is an error in the heading. It currently reads:

Heidelberg Institute of Transcultural Studies, Chair in Buddhist Studies
Lecturer, Tibetan language (classical and colloquial)

This is misleading (the subheading was accidentally carried over from an ad for a different job). The header should read:

Heidelberg Institute of Transcultural Studies, Chair in Buddhist Studies
Akademische/r Mitarbeiter/in (Assistant Professor), Buddhist Studies

I am attempting to have the H-Net announcement corrected.

There is no intent to focus the position particularly on Tibetan Buddhism. Applicants specialising in all sub-traditions are welcome to apply, although applicants in Chinese Buddhism will be at a slight disadvantage, because this will probably be regarded as too close an overlap with my own expertise.

Thank you, and regards,

Michael Radich
