The Hertie School is recruiting a Professor or Assistant Professor of Organization and Governance. We are looking for a candidate with a research agenda in organizing, mobilizing and leading for civic and public purpose. The candidate will strengthen the school’s expertise in policy influence outside government and play an important role in teaching courses on leadership, management and governance in the “Organization and Management” track of our Masters of Public Policy (MPP).
Applicants for this position must have a doctoral degree relevant for the position, or expect to have this degree by the start of employment. We are interested in early career scholars in particular, although more advanced candidates will be considered. An early career candidate will be appointed as tenure-track Assistant Professor with a six-year clock (two three-year contracts). A more advanced candidate would initially be on a fixed contract of negotiable length prior to a tenure review. In highly exceptional circumstances, a particularly outstanding candidate may be appointed with tenure.
The expected start date is 1 September 2019.
The Hertie School seeks faculty with demonstrated capacity for research, teaching, and outreach at the highest levels in their discipline. We recruit faculty who will create a climate that embraces excellence and diversity with a commitment to teaching and innovative research of interest to the international scholarly community and policy-makers.
Candidates are expected to work well in an interdisciplinary, international environment with English as the language of instruction and operation. The successful candidate will teach courses in the School’s Master, Executive, and PhD programmes and be able to collaborate with new centres of competence which will be set up over the next years. Those are the Jacques Delors Institute Berlin – Centre for European Affairs, the Centre for International Security Policy, the Centre on Digital Governance, the Centre on Fundamental Rights, the Centre on Sustainability, as well as the Hertie School Data Lab.
As a private university, the Hertie School offers an internationally competitive salary as well as a paid sabbatical after every five semesters. We provide excellent working conditions with outstanding financial and administrative support for research. The Hertie School is fully embedded in Germany’s vibrant research landscape and has close ties to the top institutions of the European and international teaching and research community as well as to the policy world.
