Chairs in Transnational Governance

School of Transnational Governance

The European University Institute’s School of Transnational Governance seeks to recruit outstanding
scholars for four new Chairs in Transnational Governance. They will constitute the founding faculty
of the recently created School.

School of Transnational Governance

The School of Transnational Governance (STG) ( was created in 2017 to deliver
teaching and high-level executive education in the methods, knowledge, skills and practice of
governance beyond the State. The STG brings the worlds of academia and policy-making together in an
effort to operate in a context, both inside and outside Europe, where policy-making increasingly
transcends national borders. The main activities of the School are structured around four pillars: (i)
Master of Arts in Transnational Governance; (ii) Executive Education for Practitioners; (iii) Policy
Leader Fellowships; (iv) High-Level Policy Dialogues. The STG has started with the policy and
executive education activities and will begin operation of its flagship Master of Arts programme in 2020.
Chairs in Transnational Governance

Candidates should enjoy an international reputation in the social sciences and humanities with an
openness to inter-disciplinarity. Their experience and expertise should cover one or more of the
principal fields of the School; in particular:

• Governance theory, practice and transnational law and/or public policy;
• Qualitative and quantitative methods in the social sciences applied to the field of transnational
policy and governance;
• Economics and international political economy;
• Leadership and decision-making theory, applied negotiation and bargaining theory;
• International Organisations or/and Regional Integration;
• Area Studies (such as Asia Pacific, Central-Asia and Africa).

The successful candidates will support the further development of the STG and will have a proven
track-record of innovative course design, programme development and teaching at Master level.
Candidates will have a strong publication record, a demonstrated interest in transnational dimensions
of public policy, experience in developing and delivering executive education programmes, and a
proven ability to mobilise external funding. They will have extensive international networks in public
policy domains and/or the private or nongovernmental sector.

The Chairs will support the STG Director, contribute to the recruitment of Master level students, and
engage in the design and implementation of the STG’s activities. The successful candidates will teach
and supervise Master students. It is expected that the STG Chairs will also undertake limited PhD
supervisory responsibilities in the relevant departments.
