The Department of Organization Sciences invites applications from qualified individuals for an assistant professorship position.

Research in the Department of Organization Sciences is organized in the OPOS― Organizations and Processes of Organizing in Society—Research Program. OPOS' mission is to advance understanding of processes of organizing by examining these processes through the lens of organizations as interdependent systems. Interdependence plays an important role for internal organizational processes (cooperation and conflict at the micro-level, between coworkers, and at the meso-level, between teams and departments), but also for external organizational processes (i.e. the macro-level: the way in which organizations cooperate and compete within their environment). Researchers in the department study topics related to interdependence within three research groups: Cooperation and Conflict between Individuals and within Teams (prof. Dr. B. Beersma); Networks and Institutions (Prof. Dr. P. Groenewegen), and Change and Identity (Prof. Dr. I. Drori).

We are looking for an assistant professor to strengthen our research group on Networks and Institutions. The group aims to combine qualitative and quantitative analytic methods for social research. For this position we have a preference for candidates who work with quantitative research tools.

We are seeking for a candidate with a strong research agenda that demonstrates the ability to connect the research themes in the Network and Institution group with those of the two other groups in the department (Cooperation and Conflict between Individuals and within Teams, and Change and Identity).
