As Assistant Professor of Accounting you will be part of the Chair Group of Business Economics at the Department of Economics and Business Economics of the Nijmegen School of Management (Radboud University). The position includes both teaching and research. You will provide high-quality courses in management accounting and/or financial accounting and reporting in the Bachelor's programme in Business Economics and the Master's programmes in Accounting and Control, and Corporate Finance. You will also be expected to supervise Bachelor's and Master's theses. Furthermore, you will conduct high-quality research in the fields of financial and management accounting, corporate governance and control, corporate performance, and/or sustainability/integrated reporting.

The Chair Group of Business Economics covers the broad field of business economics, and has a special interest in the relationships between accounting and other disciplines. The emphasis is on fundamental theory-driven research using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as various theoretical perspectives. The research themes of the Chair Group of Business Economics that relate to accounting all express the central and broad role of accounting in supporting organisational and societal design and functioning. These themes include the effectiveness of financial accounting for corporate governance, the role of sustainability reporting in meeting environmental challenges, and the relationship between accounting and risk management. In addition, the foundations of accounting are explored in research that reaches out to the philosophy of learning and action and the role of the human brain.


  • You have (or shortly expect to obtain) a PhD degree in Business Economics or Management.
  • You are highly motivated and have the potential to build a record of excellence in both research and teaching in Business Economics in general and Accounting in particular.
  • A sound record in academic teaching, as evidenced by good teaching evaluations, and a willingness to obtain a University Teaching Certificate within the first four years of the contract.
  • You should have a pipeline of submissions, revise-and-resubmits and publications in leading international journals in the field of business economics.
  • Experience in obtaining research funding is also highly valued.
  • Excellent English language skills in oral and written communication and preferably a good command of Dutch or the willingness to acquire it.
  • Radboud University has a track record in promoting excellent female scholars to leadership positions and we therefore especially welcome applications from women who fit the above profile.


  • Employment: 32 - 40 hours per week.
  • A maximum gross monthly salary of € 5,127 based on a 38-hour working week (salary scale 11).
  • The exact salary depends on the candidate's qualifications and amount of relevant professional experience.
  • In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • Duration of the contract: six years (tenure track), leading to a tenured position depending on academic performance.
  • The intended start date is 1 January 2021.
  • Under special circumstances, applicants from abroad moving to the Netherlands may qualify for a special tax relief, by which 30% of their salary is tax free.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
  • Have a look at our excellent employment conditions. They include a good work-life balance (among other things because of the excellent leave arrangements), opportunities for development and a great pension scheme.
