The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher learning. It has seven focus areas: Business Administration, Public Administration, Political Science, Economics, Social and Political Sciences of the Environment, Human Geography, and Spatial Planning. NSM strives for a multidisciplinary approach whenever possible. Altogether, NSM employs 350 FTEs, 75% of whom are academics. 

Both Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes are offered in the seven focus areas, which are organised in NSM's educational institute. The educational programme is characterised by small-scale teaching and provides a stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on the development of academic skills. NSM currently has approximately 5,000 students. NSM's research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto 'Responsible Governance for Sustainable Societies', our researchers carry out state-of-the-art research into complex problems of governance and management, in order to explain the causes of these problems, and to use that knowledge to create potential solutions. They combine knowledge and expertise from multiple disciplines with collaboration with relevant societal actors.

This position is affiliated to the Chair of Sustainable Innovation and Entrepreneurship of Prof Andrea Herrmann and located within the Group of Organisational Development and Design (OD&D), which is part of the Department of Business Administration . The OD&D group consists of 20 members and several internal and external PhD candidates. In research and teaching, the group combines interests in the structural conditions of the organisation of work with process studies of emerging change in social practices and questions of organising for social responsibility. Externally funded projects involved new forms of organising in dynamic contexts, transitional change towards sustainability and circular economy, implications of new technology and Industry 4.0, as well as changes in the development of ecosystems and standards. Members of the group have published in high-impact journals such as Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies, Human Relations, Strategic Organization, Business & Society, Journal of Business Ethics, Research Policy, and Socio-Economic Review.
