You will teach in the Bachelor's programmes in Business Administration and the Master's specialisation in Organisational Design and Development, conduct research in line with the Responsible Organisation programme, publish in international high-quality journals, attract external funding for research projects, acquire and supervise PhD projects, build international networks with businesses and academics, and contribute to the central and departmental administration and management tasks.
Fixed-term contract: It concerns a temporary employment for contract for 1.5 years with a possibility to a permanent position depending on your performance.
The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher education, focusing on institutional and managerial issues within complex organisations. There are seven disciplines within NSM: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics and Business Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning.
NSM strives for a multidisciplinary approach. Its educational programme is characterised by small-scale teaching, providing a stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on the development of academic skills. NSM employs 300 FTEs, 75% of whom are academics. NSM currently has approximately 5,000 students.
The Department of Business Administration is responsible for the BSc programmes in Business Administration (including a full track offered in English, and a track in International Business Administration) as well as eight specialisations within the MSc programme in Business Administration (all in English).
The Organisational Development and Design group consists of twelve research-active staff members and several internal and external PhD candidates. In research and teaching, the group combines interests in the structural conditions of the organisation of work with process studies of emerging change in social practices and questions of organising for social responsibility. Externally funded projects have involved new forms of organising in dynamic contexts, transitional change towards sustainability and circular economy, implications of new technology and Industry 4.0 and field-level change in the development of ecosystems and standards.
NSM's research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto 'Responsible governance for sustainable societies', IMR focuses on academic research into the development, design and effectiveness of the public and private structures that regulate, govern or manage human interactions. The academic debate is organised in the IMR Academy; the PhD programme is organised in the IMR Doctoral School. In addition to the interdisciplinary research programme on Responsible Organisation, there are six multidisciplinary research groups at the IMR linked to strategic and scientifically and societally relevant issues. IMR also hosts the Individual Decision lab and the Group Decision lab, which are especially suited for studying collaboration in complex contexts and collective decision-making.
