Your profile
We seek a real estate expert with a clear focus on real estate development, innovation and valuation. You are capable of linking the research results to the research group and anchoring them in our education with a primary focus on the relationship with the Built Environment, Facility Management and Real Estate Management study programmes. You set out a clear path for the research group, give tangible content and allure to the group’s themes and enthusiastically focus on bringing the research group to a higher level. The focus always lies on identifying the economic basis for spatial interventions and working in a multidisciplinary setting. In addition, you are capable of calculating the economic value of the interventions developed by the other NoorderRuimte research groups and assessing their social impact.

The Research Group Real Estate
Real Estate represents economic value first and foremost, but also value for the user and for society in general. The focus within the research group lies on investigating the interaction between the different value aspects within the themes of NoorderRuimte. The users of the built environment are central in these investigations. The research group adopts an economic and social perspective, for example at the interface between the real estate economy and demographic transition and the interface between real estate value and health and well-being.


The Research Centre for Built Environment NoorderRuimte of the Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen engages in applied research into the built environment of the Northern Netherlands. The professor and research groups of NoorderRuimte work together closely and focus on four themes: earthquake resistance, health & wellbeing, liveability, and sustainability. These themes accurately reflect the topical issues and tasks in relation to the northern provinces. Among other subjects, NoorderRuimte is connected to BuildinG and the Global Centre on Adaptation. The research groups Earthquake-resistant structures & Promising Groningen, Facility Management, Living Environment in Transition, Spatial Transformation - Energy, Spatial Transformation – Water, and Real Estate are all housed in the Research Centre for Built Environment NoorderRuimte. The Research Group Real Estate is part of the School of Business Management and linked to the Real Estate Management study programme offered by that school.


Would you like to play a role in research into (and the debate on) real estate and the quality and value of the built environment in the Northern Netherlands?

For the Research Group Real Estate, we seek a Real Estate professor.

Functie eisen

What do we expect of the Real Estate professor?
The professor is responsible for the Research Group Real Estate. As Real Estate professor, you work together closely with the other professors within our Research Centre and report directly to the dean of the School of Business Management.

A research group is synonymous with innovation
You initiate and coordinate practice-oriented research into real estate-related issues that are of special interest to the business community or to society. You do so together with a team of experts active in the profession and lecturers/researchers; i.e. the research group or knowledge network. You publish the resulting knowledge and insights and use them to develop educational materials and practical applications in the professional field. You are literally the bridge between education and practice. You lead practice-oriented research projects and support curricula together with the members of the research group and practice, and with other research groups in our research centre. You formulate research proposals, raise funding for these proposals from external sources (objective: 40% external funding), and make sure that the proposals are implemented. In addition, you maintain the regional, national and international networks in which the research group participates in order to strengthen the collaboration between the professional field and the university of applied sciences, and intensify and optimise knowledge sharing. As a professor, you are also involved in educational development, e.g. developing a master.
