We are looking for you as our new faculty member to expand our academic staff in the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Science (ISW) of the faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. The department’s research activities are organized in three programmes: ‘Migration, Cultural Diversity, and Ethnic Relations’, ‘Social Policy and Public Health’, and ‘Youth in Changing Cultural Contexts’.
The position comprises teaching and research. You will have a combined teaching and research position, with a strong emphasis on teaching and teaching management (60% of the appointment). The teaching related to the appointment will ideally focus on the programme ‘Youth in Changing Cultural Contexts’ where inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration is sought. Your research should ideally be linked to this programme. ‘Youth in Changing Cultural Contexts’ centres on identifying opportunities for young people to thrive and grow within diverse contexts, including that of the family, peers, school and society. Our young, enthusiastic, interdisciplinary team seeks to understand the interplay between these contexts and individual characteristics and their effects on adolescent and young adult (risk) behaviours, social media use, mental health and social relations. Our research combines large, (longitudinal) quantitative (internationally-comparative) surveys, qualitative interviews, and experimental studies.
The position involves 60% teaching activities and 40% research time (preferably starting no later than September 2022). The core tasks will include:
We believe individual and collective achievements should be in balance. That’s why we assess both individual and team performance. We stimulate good academic leadership at all levels. We also encourage researchers to share the results of scientific research with society so we can achieve more collectively and increase the university’s contribution to society.
We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague who subscribes to the values above and in addition meets the requirements below:
A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University, the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major societal themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies, Life Sciences and Sustainability.
The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences is one of the leading faculties in Europe for research and academic teaching in Cultural Anthropology, Educational Sciences, Interdisciplinary Social Science, Pedagogical Sciences, Psychology and Sociology. We are a faculty at the heart of society and one which cooperates closely with others. Our almost 6,000 students are enrolled in a broad range of undergraduate and graduate programmes. We have approximately 900 faculty and staff members, who all work closely together to educate and train young talent and to research and find solutions to scientific and societal issues. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth and Institutions for Open Societies. The group culture is open, supportive, and collaborative.
The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences aspires to have a diverse body of staff and students and strives to create and sustain a safe and inclusive environment for everyone, in line with Utrecht University’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy.
