Postdoctoral Research Fellow

The Department of Literary Studies at Ghent University, Belgium, wishes to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow for a four-year term starting on 1 October 2018 within the framework of a “Concerted Research Action” (GOA) titled “Literature, Nature, and Ecology: An Ecopoetic Approach to Contemporary Narrative Prose in French, German, English, and Italian” (director: Pierre Schoentjes; co-directors: Benjamin Biebuyck, Stef Craps, and Sabine Verhulst). Building on existing research on ecopoetics, the team, which will also employ four PhD students, will explore the role of the literary imagination, with a special focus on textual complexity and the tension between the global nature of ecological problems and local cultural specificities.
