Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Pure Mathematics

We are primarily interested in candidates working in algebraic or differential geometry, but welcome excellent applications in neighbouring areas as well. We are looking for young scientists that are eager to play a committed role in all aspects of academic life.

The Mathematical Institute of the Department of Mathematics organises and teaches the Bachelor's curricula in Mathematics as well as the (English-taught) Master's programme in Mathematics and some service teaching in mathematics. The Institute currently comprises about 10 full professors, 20 additional faculty members, 25 PhD students and 10 post-docs, and teaches 500 students. The Institute is internationally recognised for its research in both pure and applied mathematics. It houses the Utrecht Geometry Centre and maintains a long-standing tradition of transdisciplinary collaboration with other scientific fields including, among others, atmosphere/ocean sciences, computational life sciences, mathematical biology, medical and seismic imaging, and theoretical physics. We participate in university focus areas in Complex Systems and Applied Data Science.

The appointment is at the level of assistant professor (“universitair docent”, lecturer), initially for a period of 5 years. The position will be subject to a mid-term evaluation after approximately 2.5 years and an end-term evaluation. Following a positive evaluation the position will become permanent after 5 years. In case of sufficient seniority, the position can be tenured at a higher level.
In view of the gender balance, we strongly encourage women to apply. Female candidates will also be considered for a Westerdijk Fellowship, an attractive startup package created by the Faculty of Science in order to increase its number of female scientists.
