Updated: 3 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 23 May 2022

The transformations that societies and economies undergo to become sustainable consist of far-reaching changes. In regulating these changes, people with an understanding of environmental governance play a crucial role. Do you want to contribute to discussions about transformative change and do you have a heart for teaching? As an Assistant Professor, you conduct research and educate new generations of students on sustainability and change.

The Chair Group of Environmental Governance and Politics (EGP) at the Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University, is looking for an Assistant Professor (tenure track) in the field of environmental governance.

We are looking for a colleague who can strengthen our research programme by proactively contributing to discussions on transformative change from a (global) environmental governance, earth system governance or multi-level governance perspective. Expertise on human - non-human relations, including animal rights and rights of nature perspectives would be an advantage.

The Assistant Professor position requires an aptitude for research and a strong track record in publications on our core themes, as well as a heart for teaching. Above all, we are seeking a highly motivated, committed and collaborative candidate with a cooperative attitude and strong team skills.

You will be expected to contribute to the research and teaching programmes of the EGP chair group. You will teach courses in the Bachelor's programme in Geography, Planning and Environment and the Master's programme in Environment and Society Studies (ESS). You will conduct disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research, publish in international high-quality journals, attract external funding for research projects, acquire and supervise PhD projects, build international networks with academics and societal partners, and contribute to general management and coordination tasks in the chair group and department.
