The Institute of Education and Child Studies at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, and the Institute for Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) at the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs (FGGA) seek candidates for the position of
Full Professor of Social Resilience and Security (1.0 fte)
Within the framework of the stimulation programme in the field of Social Resilience and Security, the Executive Board of Leiden University has made available funding to establish a joint chair at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences and the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs (0.5 fte per Faculty). The chair will include one PhD researcher position. The Chair may be occupied in a full-time or a part-time capacity (minimum 0.5 fte).
In the area of research and teaching, the focus of the professor of Social Resilience and Security will lie on making a well-founded contribution to the scientific and societal debate about issues in the field of, and the relationship between, security and the brain. The professor will contribute to knowledge and insight concerning the interplay between social determinants (such as family of origin, peer influence), neurobiological processes, and various aspects of forensic care (diagnostics, prevention, and treatment) in the case of behaviour that transgresses societal norms. To this end, the professor will seek to overcome the current scientific and societal vacuum and to fill this gap through research, teaching, and, crucially, through providing insight into the research findings and in this way contributing to public debate.
In the broader context of the stimulation area of Social Resilience and Security, the etiology of norm-transgressive behaviour will be mapped out from an interdisciplinary perspective. In this, a distinction will be drawn between factors on the macro-, meso-, and micro-level that together contribute to the emergence of the phenomenon. In studying the macro factors – in close collaboration with the Faculties of Archeology, Law, and Humanities – the focus will be on the historical, legal, and normative context of this field, respectively. In studying the meso factors, the focus will lie on the systems (social or other) within which violence occurs and the governance of security and interventions. This will be the domain mainly of the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs. At the micro-level, finally, further research will be carried out – under the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences – into the influence of individual factors, including neurobiological factors and the influence of childhood and family of origin. In addition, research will explore the role and effect of behavioural and judicial interventions on the further development of violent behaviour.
