Professor of Responsible Consumption

The University of Amsterdam is a world-leading, research-intensive, internationally orientated university, highly ranked in both QS World University Rankings and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The Section Marketing (just over 23 fte, including 7 PhD students) at the ABS is responsible for teaching, research, and valorisation in the disciplines of marketing and digital business. Teaching and Research focuses on making a positive societal and professional impact. The Center for Responsible Consumption aims to facilitate discussion between consumers, companies, academics, and other stakeholders on the need to change consumption behaviour, resulting in joint research and teaching projects. It will focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and research and cross-pollination across stakeholder groups. With the knowledge generated from research companies and policymakers, the Center can stir the behaviour of companies and consumers to a lower footprint consumer lifestyle.

The university is looking for an outstanding scholar in responsible consumption, who is passionate about delivering world-leading research and exceptional student experience. This role is particularly suitable for an enthusiastic academic leader who shows willingness and ability to position in the new Center of Responsible Consumption and contribute to its visibility and recognition within the University of Amsterdam and beyond. Moreover, the Professor will help strengthen teaching programmes in this area across undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate programmes and to build capacity in the Center of Responsible Consumption.
