Associate Professor in Globalisation and Development, Maastricht University – Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Department of Technology and Society Studies, the Netherlands
Deadline: September 3, 2017
FASoS is seeking an associate professor with demonstrated excellence in teaching and research in the broad field of Globalisation and Development. Expertise in the field of digitalisation is an asset.
Research is carried out within the context of the Research Institute for Arts and Social Sciences and, in particular, relating to the interdisciplinary research programme Globalisation, Transnationalism and Development (GTD). The selected candidate is expected to develop international research projects and to attract external funding that is related to and in dialogue with an interdisciplinary research approach. He/she will contribute to initiatives to stimulate a dynamic research environment within the GTD and to create research opportunities for junior members of the group.
S/he will contribute to the teaching and coordination of courses and supervision of internships, projects and theses in the BA and MA programmes on Globalisation and Development Studies and possibly to a new BA programme on Digital Transformations. The division of teaching and research duties follows the regular division used at the Faculty of 60% teaching and management and 40% research. The research time can be extended through external fundraising.
Fluency in English is a prerequisite, while non-Dutch speaking applicants should be willing to learn Dutch.
In view of recruitment policies and the composition of our corps of assistant professors at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and Maastricht University in general, female candidates with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
Starting date: Preferably by January 15, 2018 (or as soon as possible thereafter).
