Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Supply Chain Management.

Research Environment

The position is in the department of Technology & Operations Management. Within this department, we practice a broad range of both analytical and empirical research methods and we have a strong tradition in critically reviewing and improving such methods.

You will also be part of the ERIM-LIS (Business Processes, Logistics, and Information Systems) community of some 90 researchers, including more than 40 PhD students. ERIM is the joint research institute of Rotterdam School of Management and Erasmus School of Economics.

The LIS research program consists of three main research themes: (i) Logistics and Supply Chain Management (including Sustainability and Supply Chain Optimization, Terminal Optimization, Purchasing and Supply Management, Behavioral and (Service) Operations Management); (ii) Business Information Management (including Behavioral Informatics Management, Future Trading and Decision-Support, Information Strategy, Smart Business Networks and Business Analytics), and (iii) Innovation Management (including Disruptive Innovation, Standardization, Visions of Innovation, and Innovation in the Supply Chain). Research methods include both empirical research methodology and mathematical modelling and simulation. The aim of the ERIM-LIS research group is to be at the forefront of the developments in its domain and to make major contributions both to management research and to management practice. Our research is largely inspired by business challenges and is often carried out in close cooperation with companies.


Applicants should have (or expect to complete soon) a Ph.D. in Supply Chain Management, Transportation, Operations Management, or a closely related field. The candidate should have expertise in one of the areas of specific interest to our group:

  • Supply chain coordination and contracting

  • Transportation and logistics

  • Intralogistics (material handling, warehouse management, terminal operations)

  • Procurement, sourcing, purchasing & supply management

  • Behavioral Operations

  • Sustainable operations and closed-loop supply chain

Candidates need to have demonstrated a potential for excellence in research and teaching. There are no specific language requirements, but the ability to teach in Dutch is appreciated.


Salaries include attractive benefits, while opportunities for extra income are available. Substantial tax benefits apply to non-Dutch citizens.
