Introduction

As the newest lecturer in the department of strategic management and entrepreneurship at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), you are an enthusiastic teacher who inspires students to make a positive impact on both business and society. 

 

Job description

As lecturer or junior lecturer of MSc Strategic Management in RSM’s department of strategic management and entrepreneurship, you contribute to various programmes offered by the school. For instance, in the BSc International Business Administration, the department’s own programmes MSc Strategic Management or MSc Strategic Entrepreneurship, or in the BSc Bedrijfskunde Dutch language programme. You understand that this role requires frequent physical presence on RSM’s Woudestein campus and you enjoy delivering high-quality instruction and engaging with students.

Depending on your profile and seniority, your tasks may focus more on supporting core staff of existing courses through the delivery of high-quality interactive workshop sessions, or on the coordination, development and delivery of your own courses. In any case, you coach and support MSc students while they develop research questions, methodology, data analysis and other aspects of the thesis process as they work toward delivering their MSc theses. Your focus lies primarily on the support of strategy related courses, but you can also support the entrepreneurship courses when needed.

Your full portfolio of teaching duties is rounded out with other activities such as coaching BSc internships, assisting in the grading of various courses at the BSc or MSc level, or coordinating student assistants. Where possible, these activities align with your research interests, expertise and/or background. For example, there may be opportunities to develop courses in the elective space of our BSc and MSc programmes.

Job requirements

Because you hold a master degree or PhD in a related field, we encourage you to apply for this vacancy. While we welcome all qualified applicants, we give you preference when you hold a PhD and have completed your University Teaching Qualification (UTQ).

You’re an enthusiastic and committed teacher, and you can demonstrate your affinity with research in strategic management or adjacent fields. You strive to provide outstanding content and clear, constructive feedback. You’re conscientious and have good organisational skills. Additionally, you are constructive and cooperative, and can work easily and fluidly with colleagues from various courses and programmes.

The working language at RSM is English, but our educational programmes are offered in English and Dutch. As a Dutch speaker, we particularly welcome you to apply for the position, although fluency in Dutch is not a must.

Employment conditions and benefits

The conditions of employment correspond with the collective labour agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU).

Salary is subject to training and experience and may vary from a minimum of € 3,226 (scale 10 CAO NU) and up to a maximum of € 5,929 gross per month (scale 11 CAO NU), based on a full-time contract of 38 hours.

Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) has attractive employment conditions, which include a holiday allowance of 8 per cent, an end-of-year bonus of 8.3 per cent, and a considerate amount of vacation days.

EUR offers all employees an annual personal career budget which can be used to advance your skills and competences. There are lots of training, development and coaching opportunities at EUR too.
