We are looking to hire a lab coordinator to support our Future Work Lab.

The contract is for at least four months, 32-40 hours a week, but rather looking for a longer period of time, year or longer.

The initiative supports organizations to excel in innovation and management through research, advice and education. The key question of the lab is: What is agility and how can it help to make our work more effective and more sustainable? Key themes are: Governance and leadership.

•              Coordination of the Agile for Excellence as part of Future Work lab (research advice, education);
•              Support in formulating and carrying out the research agenda of the lab in coordination with partners;
