Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is a leading, innovative and growing university that is at the heart of society and actively contributes to new developments in teaching and research. Our university has ten faculties which span a wide range of disciplines, as well as several institutes, foundations, research centres, and support services. Its campus is located in the fastest-growing economic region in the Netherlands (the Zuidas district of Amsterdam), and provides work for over 4,500 staff and scientific education for more than 23,000 students.
The Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS) is one of the larger faculties of the Vrije Universiteit. Over 2.500 students and more than 250 employees are engaged in teaching and research on social-science issues. The faculty has 5 bachelor- and 7 master programs. The faculty offers bachelor and master programs in sociology, anthropology, political science, public administration, communication science and organization science. The main focus of research is societal resilience (see www.fsw.vu.nl/en/research/institute-for-societal-resilience/).
The Department of Organization Sciences (http://www.fsw.vu.nl/en/departments/organization-sciences/#.WHZAa9IrLRY) invites applications from qualified individuals for 2 assistant professorship positions.
Research in the Department of Organization Sciences is organized in the OPOS― Organizations and Processes of Organizing in Society—Research Program. OPOS' mission is to advance understanding of processes of organizing by examining these processes through the lens of organizations as interdependent systems. Interdependence plays an important role for internal organizational processes (cooperation and conflict at the micro-level, between coworkers, and at the meso-level, between teams and departments), but also for external organizational processes (i.e. the macro-level: the way in which organizations cooperate and compete within their environment). Researchers in the department study topics related to interdependence within three research groups: Cooperation and Conflict between Individuals and within Teams (prof. Dr. B. Beersma); Networks and Institutions (Prof. Dr. P. Groenewegen), and Change and Identity (Prof. Dr. I. Drori).
We are looking for one assistant professor to strengthen our research group on Cooperation and Conflict between Individuals and within Teams. Research within this group focuses on cooperation and competition in organizations, with a specific focus on team performance and conflict management. For the current vacancy, we are looking for a researcher with strong quantitative skills who has elaborate experience with especially experimental, but also survey studies, whose research interests fit well with the above described themes.
The second assistant professor should have a focus on networks and institutional dynamics and arrangements. The group aims to combine qualitative and network analytic methods with new digital methods for social research.

The WZB Berlin Social Science Center, Research Unit Migration, Integration, Transnationalization (Head: Prof. Dr. Ruud Koopmans) and Research UnitDemocracy and Democratization (Head: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Merkel), seeks to hire 2 Junior Researchers (PreDocs / PhD candidates).
The position is at 65% of the regular working hours (currently 25.35 hours per week), preferably starting on May 1, 2017, initially until December 31, 2019 with the possibility of extension until April 30, 2020, subject to the availability of the necessary resources.
The two positions are located within the project “Against Elites, Against Outsiders:Democracy Critique, Immigration Critique, and Right-Wing Populism”(short: DIR).The DIR project is led by Dr. Heiko Giebler (political scientist) and Dr. Susanne Veit (social psychologist). It seeks to build a bridge between disciplines (i.e., political science, sociology, and social psychology) as well as the WZB research units “Migration, Integration, Transnationalization” and “Democracy and Democratization.” Successful applicants are expected to complete a PhD/doctorate within the project framework. If desired by the candidates, the WZB will support applications for admission into one of Berlin’s graduate schools.
Against the background of the current success of right-wing populist movements and parties in most Western democracies, the DIR project aims at exploring whether and why support for right-wing populism is associated with critical stances on democracy and with opposition against immigrants. The main goal of this project is to develop and test a process model of attitude formation and attitude change as well as to investigate whether democracy critique and immigration critique share common sources. For more details regarding the research agenda of the project, click here.
The two junior researchers will work independently within the research project. They will review relevant literature from different disciplines, collect and analyse data, write a Ph.D. thesis contributing to the project, and co-author publications on the conceptual framework and the results of the study. To build a bridge between disciplines and WZB units, the two PhD candidates are expected to closely cooperate within the project as well as with the two research units.
Applicants are expected to have:
- completed their master studies with excellent results (M.A. or diploma),
- knowledge of and experience with quantitative research and quantitative methods,
- competence in handling of statistical data analyses (using syntax-based software),
- excellent writing and communication skills in English,
- good communication skills in German (or the willingness to improve them), and
- good organizational skills as well as willingness and capacity for teamwork.
Position A (social psychological background; research on migration and integration):
This position is closely linked to the “Migration, Integration, Transnationalization” department and to questions concerning opposition against immigration. The respective doctoral candidate will be supervised by Dr. Susanne Veit. Ideally, applicants should hold a degree in (social) psychology and strive for a doctorate in psychology. Applicants should be willing to do interdisciplinary research and are expected to have substantive knowledge of social or political psychological research related to intergroup relations, ethnocentrism, political attitudes and ideologies, and system justification. Experience with experimental studies and/or large population surveys are of advantage.
Position B (social science background; democracy research):
The second position is closely linked to the “Democracy and Democratization” department and the respective doctoral candidate will be supervised by Dr. Heiko Giebler. Ideally, applicants should hold a degree in political science, communication, or sociology and strive for a doctorate in the social sciences – preferably political science. They should have acquired substantive project-related knowledge on political behaviour, political attitudes, political psychology and/or political communication from a micro-level perspective. Openness for interdisciplinary research, a strong research interest in right-wing populism and in the (legitimacy) crisis of representative democracy as well as experience with survey research are of advantage.
