The European University Institute’s School of Transnational Governance seeks to recruit outstanding scholars for four new Chairs in Transnational Governance. They will constitute the founding faculty of the recently created School.
School of Transnational Governance
The School of Transnational Governance (STG) (https://stg.eui.eu/) was created in 2017 to deliver teaching and high-level executive education in the methods, knowledge, skills and practice of governance beyond the State. The STG brings the worlds of academia and policy-making together in an effort to operate in a context, both inside and outside Europe, where policy-making increasingly transcends national borders. The main activities of the School are structured around four pillars: (i) Master of Arts in Transnational Governance; (ii) Executive Education for Practitioners; (iii) Policy Leader Fellowships; (iv) High-Level Policy Dialogues. The STG has started with the policy and executive education activities and will begin operation of its flagship Master of Arts programme in 2020.
Chairs in Transnational Governance
Candidates should enjoy an international reputation in the social sciences and humanities with an openness to inter-disciplinarity. Their experience and expertise should cover one or more of the principal fields of the School; in particular:
• Governance theory, practice and transnational law and/or public policy;
• Qualitative and quantitative methods in the social sciences applied to the field of transnational policy and governance;
• Economics and international political economy;
• Leadership and decision-making theory, applied negotiation and bargaining theory;
• International Organisations or/and Regional Integration;
• Area Studies (such as Asia Pacific, Central-Asia and Africa).
The successful candidates will support the further development of the STG and will have a proven track-record of innovative course design, programme development and teaching at Master level. Candidates will have a strong publication record, a demonstrated interest in transnational dimensions of public policy, experience in developing and delivering executive education programmes, and a proven ability to mobilise external funding. They will have extensive international networks in public policy domains and/or the private or non-governmental sector.
The Chairs will support the STG Director, contribute to the recruitment of Master level students, and engage in the design and implementation of the STG’s activities. The successful candidates will teach and supervise Master students. It is expected that the STG Chairs will also undertake limited PhD supervisory responsibilities in the relevant departments.
The EUI is an equal opportunities employer and takes into account the importance of balance in gender, geographical and minority representation.
Interested applicants should consult www.eui.eu/vacancies for further particulars.
Deadline for receipt of applications: 28 October 2019.
