As a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Sustainability and Environmental Economics you will be part of the Department of Economics and Business Economics of the Nijmegen School of Management (Radboud University). The position includes both teaching and research tasks. You will conduct high-quality research in the field of sustainability and environmental economics with a strong applied policy focus. Furthermore, you will teach high-quality courses in economics, including a course on Economics and Sustainable Development, and quantitative methods in the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Economics. You will also supervise Bachelor’s and Master‘s theses.
The Department of Economics and Business Economics is characterised by its Economics+ profile, which implies that in addition to the core of economics, our research and teaching also takes on board theories of related fields such as political science, psychology and sociology. The Department’s research comprises three themes: Interaction between Institutions and Individuals, Governance and Control in the Network Economy, and Behavioural Decision Making. Within the first theme, sustainability is a central topic of the Global Data Lab, which develops instruments for monitoring and analysing the status and progress of societies (see link below). In addition, researchers at the department study natural capital conversion and the institutional causes of unsustainable economic growth.
Radboud University has a track record in promoting excellent women scholars to leadership positions and we therefore especially welcome applications from women who fit the above profile.
