Do you have a passion for studying organising for change? We are looking for a scholar who approaches grand challenges and technological developments from a practice theory and/or process research perspective to join our team at the Nijmegen School of Management as an Assistant or Associate Professor.

The Department of Business Administration at the Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University, is looking for an Assistant / Associate Professor of Organisational Change. We offer an integral Business Administration study programme focusing on societal problems and processes in and between organisations. Our interdisciplinary research programme on Responsible Organisation addresses the multiple values underlying responsibility, the conditions required to realise those values, and interventions geared to the transition of organising for responsibility.

As an Assistant / Associate Professor, you will be one of the driving forces behind the ambition of the Chair of Organisational Development and Design to further develop research and teaching programmes in Business Administration. We are particularly looking for a scholar studying organisational change from a practice theory and/or process research perspective. Combining teaching and research skills, you should be able to inspire students conducting cutting-edge research on organisational change. You will teach in the Bachelor's programmes in Business Administration and the Master's specialisation in Organisational Design and Development, conduct research in line with the Responsible Organisation programme, publish in international high-quality journals, attract external funding for research projects, acquire and supervise PhD projects, build international networks with businesses and academics, and contribute to the central and departmental administration and management tasks.
