Department of Social Sciences and Business (ISE), Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as Professor in Political Economy of Development with a particular focus on Africa from December 1 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Candidates must have made an original and significant contribution to the field of political economy of development in Africa.

ISE conducts interdisciplinary, collaborative and socially engaged research based on political science, economics, anthropology, business studies, sociology, legal studies, and development studies. The department hosts an innovative and interdisciplinary environment characterized by academic and methodological diversity in research and education. The departments researchers excel in research methodologies and share a commitment to understanding society and businesses in diverse contexts of change and global engagement. We produce research at the highest international level that feeds into our educational programmes, while simultaneously leveraging our research to impact social, economic and political change. Research in the department is organised in research groups. The selected candidate is expected to work closely with for instance sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, and economists in one of these groups. Read more about the department here.

Furthermore, the professor is expected to attract research grants, manage research projects, provide guidance and supervision of PhD students and assistant professors, take a leading role in research groups and development of new teaching activities, and actively engage in external fundraising and other activities to increase funds for the Department as well as take active part in academic assessments and other tasks requested by the Department.
