Are you an aspiring researcher, looking to start your academic career off well-prepared? As a junior lecturer / PhD candidate, you will not only conduct research into economics, but also teach your knowledge, skills and methods to students. This way, you will be able to obtain both your PhD and university teaching qualification in one position.
We are looking for multiple full-time PhD Candidates/Junior Lecturers in Economics and Business Economics. Over a period of six years, you will spend half of your time on research and the other half on teaching.
As a junior lecturer, you will convey contemporary knowledge, skills and methods to our Bachelor’s students using traditional and state-of-the-art teaching tools. As a researcher, you will address one of the various contemporary challenges for academia and society. Besides using the traditional economist’s toolbox, you will integrate theories and methods from other disciplines so that your research will allow for multidisciplinary perspectives.
We are convinced that economists from Radboud University can make a difference in dealing with today's societal and organisational challenges. We therefore train out-of-the-box thinking economists to become properly equipped academics who are well prepared for the future economics job market.
As a lecturer, you will give tutorials, assist in teaching courses, and supervise theses in the Bachelor’s programme offered by the Department of Economics and Business Economics. As you gain more experience, you will get more responsibilities in teaching. Depending on your skills and expertise, you will also teach methodological courses (mathematics, statistics, and econometrics with R) next to content courses in economics (such as micro- and macroeconomics) and/or accounting and (corporate) finance. After six years, you will ultimately have developed sufficient teaching skills to obtain a university teaching qualification
As a researcher, you will work on one of the following themes (PhD supervisors in brackets):
1) Organisational Economics (Prof. Robbert Maseland: email@example.com
/Prof. André van Hoorn: firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Accounting in Healthcare (Prof. Frank Hartmann: email@example.com
3) Corporate Governance and Accountability (Prof. Frank Hartmann: firstname.lastname@example.org
4) Health Economics (Prof. Natascha Wagner: email@example.com
5) Digital Transformation in Economics (Dr. Sascha Füllbrunn: firstname.lastname@example.org
6) Climate Change and Economics (Prof. André van Hoorn: email@example.com
/Prof. Robbert Maseland: firstname.lastname@example.org
With your supervisory team, you will carve out your own research trajectory in the first year. This project description must be approved by the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Nijmegen School of Management. For each theme, the envisioned key elements of such a research trajectory are available upon request from the PhD supervisor concerned.
