For a February 2020 start, the Business Management & Organization (BMO) Group in the Social Sciences Group (SSG) of Wageningen University is looking to attract an ambitious and high-potential academic in the area of (Innovation) Management.

In a globalising world, where firms face major challenges related to, a.o., global warming, urbanisation and food security, we provide the knowledge and insights needed to internally organise and govern firms appropriately and for firms to effectively collaborate in chains and networks.

Wageningen University is the world leading university in its domain. We offer Tenure Track as a career trajectory to excel academically in research and teaching.
