14 Jul 11 SepTilburg
Are you passionate about the academic field of information management? Are you passionate about transferring your knowledge to the next generation? The Department of Management at Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TISEM), Tilburg University, is looking for enthusiastic colleagues to reinforce education in those areas.
Your job will entail teaching courses. We offer courses to TiSEM’s master programs, mainly MSc Information Management and MSc Supply Chain Management, as well as bachelor programs, including BSc International Business Administration and BSc Business Economics (in Dutch Bedrijfseconomie). Teaching courses involves giving lectures, teaching tutorials and workshops, assessing students, and updating teaching materials. Besides, your job will entail thesis supervision and assessment. Students write a thesis for completion of the bachelor and our master programs.
Both in our courses and in theses supervision, we aim for academic rigor and practical relevance. The majority of our teaching is done in English but for a minority of courses we teach in Dutch. Teaching will be mainly on our campus in Tilburg and only in rare occasions and to a small extent online. Almost all courses are taught by teams of instructors.
Candidates wishing to combine their work in the field with a (part-time) academic appointment are eligible to apply.
You will be embedded in the productive, collegial, and engaged Information and Supply Chain Management (ISCM) Research Group at Tilburg University. The group consists of faculty, lecturers, postdoctoral researchers, and PhD candidates. The ISCM Research Group is a growing high-quality high-impact research group in Tilburg University’s School of Economics and Management. Faculty span a wide range of research topics and methods. Recently, we have grown substantially in size and in research output, with in particular an outstanding group of junior and mid-career faculty. Our leading faculty publish in premier outlets such as those in the FT50 journal list. The ISCM Group is part of the Department of Management in the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM). TISEM is the largest school of Tilburg University. It benefits from a strong research reputation, for instance exemplified by the recent top-10 ranking in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (“Shanghai Ranking”) for the field of business administration. The MSc Information Management program was ranked as #1 of its kind in the Netherlands according to the 2022 national student survey.
You are passionate about information management, information systems, programing, data science, digital technology in general, project management, technical or managerial domains of IT, and about sharing that passion with young people. You can present to larger audiences in a physical classroom, but you can also coach smaller groups and individual students in smaller settings. You are proficient in the use of digital (teaching) tools. Besides, you can cope with change, collaborate well with colleagues and students, and are always looking for ways to further increase your performance.
You should have at least a master’s degree or above, preferable a PhD degree, in the fields of information management, information systems, data science, computer science, or a closely related field, from a research university. You should also have recent knowledge about those areas, as well as be skillful in the prevailing quantitative and qualitative research methods in those areas. If you have not obtained a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) yet, you should be willing to receive training and eventually obtain the UTQ while on the job. Candidates who already have a UTQ, have a PhD, and/or are able to teach in Dutch have an advantage.
Both candidates who wish to pursue a fully academic teaching career as well as candidates who wish to pursue a dual career in business and academia are invited to apply.
