Junior Lecturer in Marketing (0.6 – 0.8 FTE)


Faculty of Economics and Business


University of Groningen

Job description

Within the Department of Marketing (Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen, The Netherlands), two positions are vacant for a junior lecturer; each for 0.6 to 0.8 FTE.

The new junior lecturer is expected to strengthen the educational component of the Department of Marketing. The junior lecturer is a position focused on teaching, with 90% of the time allocated to teaching tasks, and 10% reserved for research and development activities. Therefore, we seek candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching. Educational tasks can be fulfilled at the bachelor as well as the master level. You will supervise tutorial groups and bachelor thesis projects, and assist in grading of bachelor and master courses. There are also opportunities to contribute to the development of our blended teaching and the embedding of societal themes in our curricula. The specific tasks will depend on your own expertise and experience.

The Department of Marketing is one of the leading marketing groups in Europe. The department is responsible for courses in marketing for students in Bachelor and Master programs – in particular on Marketing Management, and Marketing Analytics & Data Science – at the Faculty of Economics and Business. Scientific research is concentrated in the research program Marketing (part of the FEBRI research school), which consistently obtains very high ratings in research evaluations. Contract research, in turn, is conducted within the RUG Customer Insights Center and the Groningen Digital Business Center, which both form a bridge between science and practice.


To qualify, you:

- have an MSc degree in Marketing or a related discipline, or are about to obtain one
- have experience as a student assistant or comparable work experience
- are fluent in English, and preferably in Dutch
- have excellent communication, presentation, and teaching skills
- function well in an international environment
- have good interpersonal skills and the ability to successfully work both individually and in a team.

Conditions of employment

Contract length: 48 months.

We offer in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities:

- a salary depending on qualifications and work experience starting from a minimum of € 2,960 to a maximum of € 4,670 (salary scale 10) gross per month for a full-time position
- a holiday allowance of 8% gross annual income
- an 8.3% year-end bonus
- minimum of 29 holidays and additional 12 holidays in case of full-time employment
- an appointment for a period of four years.

In principle, the position is part-time, and we expect that each position is between 0.6 and 0.8 FTE, where the exact number is part of the discussion with the candidate. Starting date of the position is projected to be September 2023.

The University of Groningen is an equal opportunities employer. Since women are still under-represented in a number of fields, they are particularly encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants should submit:

1. a motivation letter
2. a complete curriculum vitae.

You may apply for this position until 15 June 11:59pm / before 16 June 2023 Dutch local time (CET) by means of the application form (click on "Apply" below on the advertisement on the university website).
