About ROA and its director
ROA is a research centre of Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics, established in 1986. Through its research, the institute aims to improve the understanding of the relationship between education and the labour market. The institute currently has a staff of 50 persons.
The research is rooted in five programs, each headed by a program director/professor. The program directors together with the controller constitute ROA’s management team. As the director, you will work with members of the management team and other senior staff to attract funding for fundamental as well as commissioned research and seek fruitful collaboration in academic and policy networks both at the national and international level.
Currently, the task of director is carried out by two persons who are also program directors. If you prefer so, you can also share your director’s role with another member of the management team.
The role of chairholder
The position of ROA director is linked to the chair of Education and the Labour Market. In your capacity as chairholder, you will supervise PhD students and play a supporting role in initiating and coordinating research projects that have societal impact and lead to publications in (top-rated) scientific journals. All this with a view to foster the visibility and reputation of ROA.
Teaching duties are limited and open for discussion.

The overarching theme of ROA’s research is the acquisition and depreciation of human capital over the life course in relation to the dynamics of the labour market. The centre has five research programmes:
The first three programmes focus on education and training at individual and organisational levels. The other two programmes focus on individual and organisational behaviour, and the interaction between the two, in national and regional labour markets.
