Are you looking for a challenging job in a dynamic setting? The Leadership & Management section at the Amsterdam Business School (ABS)
, University of Amsterdam, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty assistant professor position with emphasis on “The digital citizen as a worker” to join our section.
Work is a core human activity that affects income as well as identity. Yet, jobs, workplaces and employment relationships are all fundamentally changing due to the ongoing digital transformation, the increased role of algorithms in organizations and the rise of the platform economy. This yields many new questions that are important to address. For example, how do new forms of employment (e.g., gig work, or self-employment) or work (e.g., remote work) as a result of digitization change the employment relationship and what consequences do such changes have for workers? What are the benefits and the risks of the growing importance of algorithmic management for the worker as well as the organization? What is the impact of digitalization on the meaning of work and citizens identity?
Also, there is currently a growing risk that the increasing differences in the level of digital literacy will lead to an increasing gap in employability and income potential between those who are able to keep up with technological developments and those who struggle to do so. How do such differences in digital literacy impact workers and organizations, and how can digital literacy of workers be developed in more inclusive ways? These are interdisciplinary themes that fit both with our section and especially the Amsterdam People Analytics Centre
and is part of the interdisciplinary theme: 'Education, citizenship and democracy in a digital world' of the Faculty of Economics and Business, the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, the Faculty of Humanities, and the Faculty of Law.
