I have a PhD in Art History from a university in the United States. I was wondering what a full-time senior researcher position might entail because this is very uncommon in the United States, specifically in art history. Here is a job posting I found for a position with a 6-year contract: https://arthist.net/archive/37784
I assume that a senior researcher position would mean that it's research only and not teaching, but I feel like the posting is unclear. Is a research position typically without teaching?
Is a six-year position for a senior researcher common?
Is a base salary of EUR 1404,00 - 1754,00 low, or is this figure only low based on my expectations coming from a very expensive city in the U.S.?
Update: I interviewed, but did not get the position. I was told that the 6-year contract was related to legalities regarding non-residents. I was also told that "eventually" there would be teaching, however, many of the other researchers did not live in Latvia (Germany, mostly).
