Academic Relationship Builder / Postdoctoral Researcher: Responsible Innovation
Academic Relationship Builder / Postdoctoral Researcher: Responsible Innovation
The interdisciplinary research group ('hotspot') Responsible Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Nijmegen School of Management (Radboud University) is looking for an enthusiastic academic relationship builder/postdoctoral researcher. The hotspot is currently striving to improve its external visibility and strengthen its relationships with external partners. An important initiative in this respect is the Responsible Innovation Scan, which can be used to advise firms on responsible innovation.
As an academic research professional, you will help improve the external profile of the hotspot 'Responsible Innovation and Entrepreneurship'. You will build and maintain external relationships that may help forward research on responsible innovation and entrepreneurship. This requires a clear understanding of what drives academic researchers, as well as a certain sensitivity to the needs of professionals in the field who stimulate or develop innovations. Your ambition is to act as a linking pin between academic research and practice. An important responsibility will be to support a newly established PhD project on the Responsible Innovation Scan, setting up the network contacts required for developing and validating this Scan, as well as support the data collection and analysis in this project. As part of the Responsible Innovation Scan team, you will develop the infrastructure needed to continue data collection for the scan after this project has been concluded, thus providing a long-lasting asset for the hotspot.
Furthermore, you will be expected to engage the hotspot researchers in projects on responsible innovation and explore possibilities for additional research projects and publications based on data from the Responsible Innovation Scan. You will therefore identify relevant calls for research on responsible innovation and entrepreneurship, and match them to hotspot researchers in cooperation with grant advisors from the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). In addition, you will coordinate an annual event that links academic research to practice. Finally, you will establish a hotspot research council consisting of representatives from non-academic research partners. You will have a small teaching load of up to 10 percent of your working time.
