The University of Amsterdam Business School is looking to fill one or more positions at the assistant or associate professor level in the field of International Business. These positions are housed within the International Strategy & Marketing department. We are interested in candidates in international business generally, but would particularly like to encourage those who have a research interest/experience in international marketing, strategy and/or corporate governance broadly defined (internal and external governance, including corporate responsibility issues and stakeholder management perspectives). Candidates would ideally be able to start in the summer of 2014.

The University of Amsterdam (UvA) is a broad-based research-driven university dating back to 1632 with an enrollment of over 30,000 students. Rankings by the Times (THES) and QS put UvA in the top 100 universities world-wide. Within the UvA, the University of Amsterdam Business School (ABS) offers executive, graduate and undergraduate programmes in accounting, finance, management, marketing and strategy. Most of the teaching in these programmes takes place in small seminar sized groups. The International Strategy and Marketing (ISM) department is the largest department at ABS, home to around 25 faculty members in addition to PhD students and affiliated faculty.

Over the last six years, the ISM department has grown substantially. Members of the ISM faculty publish regularly in leading journals in International Business/Management (particularly Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of World Business, Management International Review, International Business Review, International Marketing Review) and in management and marketing more broadly (e.g., Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Management, Journal of Retailing, Journal of Product Innovation Management, International Journal of Research in Marketing), as well as more managerially-oriented journals (e.g., California Management Review, Harvard Business Review).


What we are looking for


We are looking for candidates who take their teaching seriously and have published, or are about to publish, in top-tier international journals, and have an ongoing research portfolio in international business, strategy and/or marketing. We are particularly interested in ambitious team players who can help us further build our section and ABS more generally. A PhD in management/marketing or a related field is a requirement for all positions. The track record of candidates above the level of assistant professor should be consistent with the rank applied for.


What we offer


The possibility to help shape a growing business school at an internationally recognized university that has the ambition to become a leading international player in the field of business research and education. ABS is located in the heart of Amsterdam, the cultural and financial capital of the Netherlands. Amsterdam offers a cosmopolitan living environment with excellent connections to the rest of the world.

Appointment at the assistant professor level will be on the basis of a tenure track. Salary will be in accordance with Dutch academic salary scales and include a pension scheme. For assistant professors this is between €3,259 & €5,070 per month (+16.3% holiday and end-year payments). For associate professors this is between €4,517 & €6,039 per month (+16.3% holiday and end-year payments), and for full professors between €5,003 & €8,795 per month (+16.3% holiday and end-year payments). A substantial reduction in income tax (equal to 30% of taxable salary) may apply to non-Dutch candidates.
