Utrecht University is pleased to invite applications for a Chair in Organizations and Sustainability. The Chair will be appointed at the Faculty of Geosciences and its Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development to help drive education, research, and impact creation in this area. The Chair is a full-time appointment including a management component.
The aim of the Chair is to develop scientific insights on how organisations pursue radical change strategies, how they acquire or loose resources and legitimacy in the process of doing so, and what conditions are conducive for success and failure. Although an emphasis can be foreseen on firms as key organisations, given the collective nature of sustainability transitions, it is expected that also influences of other organisations are taken into account. The Chair will contribute to the excellent international scientific profile of the Copernicus
Institute by developing and executing transdisciplinary research in the field of organisations, innovation and sustainability, and by contributing to theory development in the fields of sustainability research and organisation/management studies.
The Faculty of Geosciences at Utrecht University is the largest in the Netherlands, offering a comprehensive range of geosciences courses in both the sciences and social sciences. The Sustainable Development Department, also known as the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development, is one of four departments at the Faculty of Geosciences and investigates processes and opportunities for innovative change towards sustainability. The Copernicus Institute offers a unique multidisciplinary environment and has its primary
emphasis on the sustainability challenges faced by society and how society is coping with these challenges.
