[Universiteit van Tilburg]


The Department of Management of Tilburg University invites applications for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor position with an emphasis on Information Management and/or Supply Chain Management. We are looking for a candidate with top research potential and a commitment to teaching excellence, whose work fits our orientation towards information/data science/analytics or supply chain/operations scholarship from a management perspective. We are able to hire applicants to join the Department in any month during 2017; however, ABD applicants are expected to have completed their doctoral dissertation prior to taking up employment.

As part of a strategic growth and recruitment drive, the Department also has openings in entrepreneurship, at open rank, and in strategy, at assistant professor level. Interested applicants in these areas should refer to our separate position announcements (available on the Academy of Management placement website).

Department and Position Background

The Department of Management is part of the School of Economics and Management at Tilburg University. As a whole, the Department consists of 31 tenured or tenure-track faculty members and 8 lecturers in two sections (strategy and organization; information and supply chain management). Within the Department, the Information and Supply Chain Management section conducts research in the fields of supply chain management, operations management, information management and information systems from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. Its tenured or tenure-track members include professors Henk Akkermans, Jack Kleijnen, Bert Meijboom, Michael Papazoglou, Anne-Françoise Rutkowksi (PhD Track Coordinator), Willem-Jan van den Heuvel (Research and Education Coordinator for Data Science initiatives), and Bart Vos (Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs); associate professors Hennie Daniels, Harold Krikke, Carol Ou (Deputy Head of Department), Martin Smits, and Hans Weigand; and assistant professors Emiel Caron, Martin Goossen, Joris Hulstijn, Cindy Kuijpers and Wendy van der Valk. The Department also has a high-caliber set of emeritus (Jean-Francois Hennart and Bart Nooteboom) and affiliated faculty and fellows (including Christoph Bode). Department members come from leading universities in North America, Asia and Europe.

The Department has a very strong research orientation with a focus on high-quality publications. The Department is associated with several research institutes, including the European Research Institute in Service Science (ERISS), and with several large-scale initiatives, including the new Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS), a campus and graduate school in Den Bosch.

Faculty of the Department mostly teach in two Bachelor programs, four Master's programs, two Research Master's programs and two PhD tracks. All programs except one of the Bachelor programs are taught in English. Non-Dutch-speaking candidates will be asked to teach in English only. The working language of the Department and School is English. Further information about the Department is available at www.tilburguniversity.edu/mgt<http://www.tilburguniversity.edu/mgt>.

We aim to maximize the research time available to active faculty, and working conditions are otherwise comparable to major research universities in Europe and North America. The teaching load for pre-tenure faculty is the equivalent of two courses plus guidance of Bachelor and Master's thesis projects, in total per year (40% teaching time). Compensation is competitive with similar schools, and we provide support for conferences and other research related expenses. Faculty moving to the Netherlands may be eligible for a large tax abatement for a period of ten years.
