    Luiss University (Rome, Italy) seeks applications for an appointment as Associate or Full Professor of Public Management. 

    We seek candidates with a strong commitment to research and teaching and the aspiration to contribute to Luiss University's international expansion and visibility. They will be leading scholars with research and teaching experience, and a relevant record of publications and research projects.

    Ideal candidates will show a passionate drive to engage in Luiss University's dynamic and stimulating academic environment and contribute to its further development. They will have research experience in the broad field of public management, with proven ability to develop novel research projects, with preferences for subjects like: public management and governance; strategy and organization in the public sector; decision making in public sector; performance management, planning and control in the public sector; business-Government relationships. They will be able to teach and publish in English. They will also be able to teach in-presence, blended, and fully digital programs.

    Luiss is firmly pursuing the "engaged scholarship" philosophy and the adoption of the "enquiry-based" approach. Ideal candidates must therefore be able to lead rigorous research activities on problems that are relevant for society at large, as well as informing their teaching with methods and content from first-hand research activities. They should also be able to master the ability of selectively "connecting the dots" between and across disciplinary domains, and possess the capacity to contribute to the formation of "specialized generalists", i.e., graduates able to navigate complexity and operate between and across knowledge domains. They will be able to teach and publish in English. They will also be able to teach in-presence, blended, and fully digital programs.

    Luiss Associate/Full Professors are expected to undertake rigorous and innovative research in their field(s) of interest, publish in high quality international journals, and provide academic assistance or leadership in research activities. They are also expected to contribute to the collegial and intellectual life of the University and of the Luiss community at large, and to the development of the university's degree programs.
    Teaching load is usually 120 hours per year, either in undergraduate or graduate programs, but special conditions of engagement may apply. Teaching assistantships are available. The position holder will also supervise master's dissertations and bachelor's papers. Appointments are full-time and the salary is competitive.
