Department and Conditions

The Department of Management is part of the School of Economics and Management (TiSEM) at Tilburg University. As a whole, the department consists of 38 tenured or tenure-track faculty members and 13 lecturers. Within the department, the Information and Supply Chain Management (ISCM) section conducts research in the field of information management/systems/science, as well as supply chain management and operations management, from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives.

The current members of the department, including its ISCM section, are listed at www.tilburguniversity.edu/mgt. Department members come from leading universities in North America, Asia and Europe. We are a diverse and collegial group of research-oriented colleagues, including a terrific group of junior and recently hired scholars. The working language of the department and school is English.

In addition to bachelor programs, the Department is hosting five Master’s programs. The Department also collaborates closely with the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS, a joint unit of Tilburg University and Technical University of Eindhoven) in the Data Science and Entrepreneurship Master’s program, as well as with the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences on the Data Science and Society (DSS) program. In addition, the Department hosts two tracks of TiSEM’s Research Master and Ph.D. programs, which prepare researchers for productive academic careers with excellent international placements.

The department has a very strong research orientation with a focus on high-quality publications. We aim to maximize the research time available to research-active faculty, and working conditions are otherwise comparable to major research universities in Europe and North America. The teaching load for pre-tenure faculty is the equivalent of two courses plus guidance of Bachelor and Master’s thesis projects per year (40% teaching time). We expect multiple publications in top journals over the tenure clock. Compensation is competitive with similar schools, and we provide guaranteed travel and starting research budgets. Faculty moving to the Netherlands may be eligible for 30% tax abatement for a period of five years.
