Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in Mathematics TU Delft

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in Mathematics
TU Delft/Netherlands

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programmes. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research.
Research at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) centres around the analysis of mathematical models arising in science and engineering. This research is both fundamental and applied in nature, and is often inspired by technical applications. The department plays an active role in translating research results into concrete, practical applications. It maintains intensive contacts with other TU Delft departments, the major technological institutes, and the research laboratories of major companies. Within its own subject field, the department provides teaching for the Applied Mathematics BSc and MSc programmes, and also contributes to the teaching of mathematics courses within other academic programmes at the TU Delft and within national programmes such as “MasterMath”.

The Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics consists of six research groups: Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Numerical Analysis, Applied Probability, Statistics, and Optimisation. More information about the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics can be found at www.ewi.tudelft.nl/en/the-faculty/departments/applied-mathematics/. The department organizes lunch seminars, where colleagues from the various sections explain aspects of their work for the whole DIAM staff. It also has a yearly social activity where staff members interact informally. These initiatives contribute to the positive atmosphere felt at DIAM.

Job description
Taking into account the current gender diversity we especially ask female candidates to apply.

During the Tenure Track, you will have the opportunity to develop into an internationally acknowledged and recognised academic. We offer a structured career and personal development programme designed to offer individual academics as much as support as possible.

The candidate is a (preferably) female university graduate with a PhD in Mathematics in a viable and promising area, related to research directions present at DIAM and complementing the institute’s research portfolio in a meaningful way. She has a proven track record of excellence in her research field, as evidenced by refereed publications in top quality journals. She is a future leader in her field. The candidate is able to make significant contributions to research, is an enthusiastic team player, and has excellent communication skills. She shows the potential to be an inspired and dedicated teacher.
