From February 2017 Sofie Remijsen is lecturer (UD) of Ancient History at the University of Amsterdam. She studied Ancient History at KULeuven (Belgium), where she obtained a Master in 2006 and a PhD in 2012. From 2013 on, she worked for four years as Juniorprofessorin für Alte Geschichte at the University of Mannheim (Germany).

Her research focuses mainly on the culture and society of the Roman Empire, including Late Antiquity. She has a particular interest in sport and games, papyri from Egypt, and calendars and the use of time. Her PhD research on the disappearance of athletic contests such as the Olympic Games was published by Cambridge University Press: The End of Greek Athletics in Late Antiquity (2015).

Currently, Sofie Remijsen is developing a new research project on time and identity in Late Antiquity and co-coordinating the DFG-network CHRONOS.
