Functieomschrijving

Are you an ambitious and enthusiastic scientist with expertise in Strategic Human Resource Management? As associate professor, you will teach students about and conduct cutting-edge research on the institutional context of employment relations. This way, you help the Strategic HRM Chair group to become an international centre of expertise on sustainable work, careers and employability for responsible organisations.

The Department of Business Administration at the Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University, is looking for an Associate Professor of Strategic Human Research Management, specialising in the institutional context of employment relations. National and international legislation and labour market regulation; historical, social and political systems; and the power of labour unions and trade associations all have an impact on HRM strategies and the adoption of HRM practices within work organisations. As organisations operate in complex institutional environments, core expertise in this regard is important and will strengthen the Chair of Strategic HRM.

As Associate Professor of Strategic HRM, you will be part of the Strategic HRM Chair group within the Department of Business Administration which seeks to educate students for future challenges through our integral Business Administration study programme. Together with the other members of the Chair group and the Department of Business Administration, you will further develop the quality and impact of the group's teaching activities. The group participates in various courses in the Bachelor's degree programme of the Department of Business Administration, and is responsible for the Master's specialisation in Strategic Human Resources Leadership. The latter focuses on social processes in the management and responsible leadership of human resources from a multiple-stakeholder perspective. While taking into account the dynamics and complex international institutional contexts of today's working life, we increase students' ability to use, apply and reflect on theory and practice regarding the strategic role of HRM in the profit, services and public sectors.

As regards research, you will be expected to be strongly committed to act as a driving force for realising the Strategic HRM Chair group's ambition: to become an international centre of expertise on sustainable work, careers and employability for responsible organisations. You will help further strengthen these research pillars with specific attention to how age, gender and ethnicity intersect. The members of the Chair group have published in high-impact journals such as Annals of The Academy of Management Annals, European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, Organization Studies, Journal of Management Studies, and Human Resource Management Journal.

Combining teaching and research skills, you should be able to inspire students conducting cutting-edge research on the institutional mechanisms that have an impact on HRM. You will teach courses in the Bachelor's and the Master's programmes in Business Administration, conduct research in line with the Responsible Organisation programme, publish in international high-quality journals, attract external funding for research projects, acquire and supervise PhD projects, build international networks with businesses and academics, and contribute to central and departmental administration and management tasks.

Functie-eisen

  • You are an ambitious and enthusiastic scientist, and a strong team player, passionate about both research and education.
  • You have a PhD degree in business administration or a related field.
  • You have an excellent scientific reputation, evidenced by a strong publication record in internationally recognised high-quality journals on international business and strategic management topics.
  • You are actively involved in international collaborative networks and have strong connections to organisational and business practice.
  • You have proven experience in attracting research funding from research councils and other external parties.
  • You have at least five years of experience in teaching in the field of human resource management at a university level.
  • You have good teaching skills, an enthusiasm for teaching and working with students, and the capacity to develop and implement innovative teaching methods as well as the ability to coordinate academic courses or study programmes. A Dutch university teaching qualification (BKO or UKO) or equivalent would be an advantage.
  • You can prove that you are able to supervise and inspire PhD candidates, to cooperate across disciplinary boundaries and to support an academic organisation in its administrative tasks as evidenced by coordination of a study programme and/or membership of internal committees and councils (e.g. a scientific advisory committee or examination board).
  • Your English language skills are outstanding and you are willing to learn Dutch.

Conditions

  • Employment for 0.8 - 1.0 FTE.
  • The gross monthly salary amounts to a minimum of €5,275 and a maximum of €6,421 based on a 38-hour working week, depending on previous education and number of years of relevant work experience (salary scale 13).
  • You will receive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • It concerns a temporary employment for 1.5 years with a permanent contract after positive evaluation.
  • 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.
  • Working for us means getting extra days off. In case of full-time employment, you can choose between 29 or 41 days of annual leave instead of the legally allotted 20.
Additional employment conditions Work and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions. You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription. And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.
