The Institute seeks to expand its academic staff by appointment of an assistant professor with teaching and research expertise intelligence studies. The successful applicant will be expected to:
In our Research Group Intelligence and Security, intelligence is studied from a political, historical, ethical, judicial, and methodological perspective. The main goal is to improve our understanding of how intelligence and security services operate, how their methodologies can be complemented, and how they are and have been embedded in their broader political, bureaucratic, and societal context. Research on the judicial, political, governance, historical, and ethical elements of intelligence and security should improve our understanding of how intelligence and security services relate to the broader (democratic) state they are part of. One of our ambitions is to encourage research next to the intelligence studies in the Anglo-Saxon world, which is traditionally the strongest – we therefore encourage the ‘continental European’ intelligence studies.
In order to fulfil these ambitions, we have designated four key areas on which our research focuses.
The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) is a scientific institute that focuses on interdisciplinary research and education within the international scientific field of security studies. ISGA analyses and studies issues in a coherent way from their local transnational and global impact.
Researchers at our institute are engaged in interdisciplinary research and teaching within the international scientific field of security studies.
