My team at the University of Twente, the Netherlands, is hiring a new Assistant Professor in Organizational Behaviour (OB) and Technology in Cross-cultural Work Settings. We are seeking for a talent with a background in a combination of OB, change management, cross-cultural management, and/or operations management. We expect you to have acquired expertise in various (high-tech) research methods in business administration (qualitative, quantitative, or a mix), taught or co-developed OB-type courses, and can connect your research to the domains of industrial engineering or business information systems. Within the HBE department, you will be able to link your expertise to various other themes such as smart-industry, supply chain management, transportation and logistics management, innovation management, healthcare operations, technology-based entrepreneurship, purchasing and supply management, cyber security, financial engineering, e-marketing, and e-HRM.
HBE's mission is to design and execute impact-driven research and education to attain responsible and sustainable high-tech transformation of industries, using cross-disciplinary approaches. Such transformation requires in-depth knowledge about how geographically spread (high-tech) organizations and supply chains, and people working within those settings, can collaborate well and improve their performance, e.g. through the adoption of smart technologies and data-driven decision making. Or how multinational firms and/or (increasingly internationalizing) local workplaces like healthcare could realize technological and pro-environmental practices adoption and behaviour change, while minimizing resistance and maximizing employee thriving.
We challenge conventional scholarly wisdom! Are you looking for a forward-thinking team-based environment to expand the borders of your home subject area and develop cross-disciplinary expertise? Join our OB team and strive to make a significant impact on science and society.
The application deadline is 15th of January 2023. The full vacancy text can be found here: https://utwentecareers.nl/en/vacancies/952/assistant-professor-organizational-behaviour-and-technology/
