Assistant Professor in Global Transformations and Governance Challenges

The Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs of University Leiden is looking for an Assistant Professor in Global Transformations and Governance Challenges

Project description
Leiden University is investing over 1.4 million Euros in a new program on Global Transformations and the Citizen. The overall aim of this interdisciplinary research cluster is to combine research on global transformations (such as shifting multipolar world order, climate change, pandemics, and new information technologies) with research on governance responses to these challenges. The focus area of Leiden University on Global Transformations and Governance Challenges aims to deepen understanding of these complex processes, including their impacts on citizens and democracy.

In the context of this research cluster, Leiden’s Institute of Security and Global Affairs and Institute of Political Science seek to jointly recruit an Assistant Professor, who will work alongside the newly appointed Chair of Global Transformations and Governance Challenges (Professor Dr. Jan Aart Scholte) and an interdisciplinary research team in order to develop a set of innovative approaches to these problems.
