The University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam Business School (ABS) invites applications for tenure track faculty positions in our section Entrepreneurship & Innovation. We have two vacancies, one with emphasis on innovation in relation to the creative industries, and one with emphasis on innovation management in relation to entrepreneurship.

You will be a member of a successful group with a both ambitious and supportive culture, and with ample opportunity for personal development in an attractive international work environment. We aim for outstanding research and world-class teaching in university Bachelor, Master and executive programmes.

We are hiring to accommodate the growing national and international demand for our education. Our teaching is research-based and relevance, responsibility and an international focus are key. We foster our excellent relations with a vibrant business community in the Amsterdam region and globally.

What are you going to do?

 The core tasks of an Assistant Professor are in teaching and research. In the tenure track appointment, 50% of the time will be for research, while the teaching load will maximally take up the other 50% of time. Teaching will be at the graduate (MSc), the undergraduate (BSc) level or in the executive program. Research is aimed at international top journals, especially in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovation management.

The intended starting date will be 1 September 2021 for the first position and around or before 1 January 2022 for the second, depending on the candidate's availability and the section's planning.


We are looking for two Assistant Professors in Entrepreneurship & Innovation, the first one (1) with emphasis on creative industries & innovation, and the second (2) with emphasis on innovation management and entrepreneurship, especially in connection to each other.

Candidates should have or be close to (the thesis should be approved by the time the contract starts) obtaining a PhD in Management Science or a closely related discipline, and their research should concern the fields of creative industries management, entrepreneurship and/or innovation management. They will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in teaching and research. Given developments in the section’s and school’s research we have a slight preference for candidates interested in applying computer science-powered tools of data analysis – but we are not excluding candidates with other methodological interests.


Our offer

The selected candidate will be offered a six-year tenure track position as Assistant Professor. Upon meeting the criteria for tenure, a permanent contract as Associate Professor will be offered.

The gross monthly salary during the first three years will be, depending on experience, between €4,139 and €5,127 (salary scale 11) based on 38 hours per week (+ 16.3% holiday and end-year payments). After a positive evaluation the maximum becomes €5,826 (salary scale 12). This is based on 38 hours per week and in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities, regulating employment conditions at Dutch universities. A substantial reduction in income tax (equal to 30% of taxable salary) may apply to non-Dutch candidates. The UvA offers a very attractive pension scheme.
