Job description

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and the Foundation Endowed Chair on Standardisation, invites applications for a Part-time (0,5 fte) Endowed Professorship in Standardization Management.


Standards are crucial for today’s innovative society. Managing standards from a strategic and operational point of view is critical for the successful usage of these standards by organisations and societies. The endowed chair position was established in 1993 and initiated by Royal NEN, the Dutch standardization organization. Since its creation, RSM’s Chair on Standardization has played a forerunner role in developing education and research about standardization. The aim is to continue developing and disseminate knowledge on standardization but to put more emphasis on the managerial relevance and dissemination of knowledge to decision makers in industry and society.
