The EUI’s School of Transnational Governance (STG) at the European University Institute (EUI) seeks to recruit up to three outstanding scholars to fill new Chairs in Transnational Governance. 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's 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 work in close collaboration with the School’s top management and faculty and contribute to the recruitment of Master level students and engage in the design and implementation of the STG’s activities.
Candidates with an international reputation in the social sciences and humanities with an openness to inter-disciplinarity. Their experience and expertise should be within areas relevant to transnational governance in all its forms, especially but not exclusively in the following areas:
- Global South: with particular reference to substantive policy areas related to development, such as economic growth, corruption, poverty reduction, or resource-management.
- Global public health: with a transnational outlook, including the ‘nexus’ of economic risks and social welfare.
- Leadership: including decision-making theory and practice; the interplay of private and public sectors; ethics.
- Transnational law: with particular emphasis on issues, forms and regulation of the law beyond the State.
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 EUI departments. The contract is for five years, renewable for a further three years conditional upon satisfactory performance appraisal and availability of funds. The Institute is an equal opportunity employer and takes into account the importance of balance in gender, geographical, and minority representation.
