Two assistant professors of Mathematics (tenure-track)

We are searching for one new colleague in the division of Fundamental Mathematics, whose expertise is in connection with geometry and/or mathematical physics, in the broadest sense. This comprises, but is not limited to, algebraic geometry, automorphic forms, differential geometry, geometric analysis, and non-commutative geometry.
We are searching for another new colleague in the division of Mathematical Modelling whose expertise is in dynamical systems in connection with computational mathematics, in the broadest sense. This comprises, but is not limited to, applied analysis, numerical bifurcation theory and scientific computing. Areas of interdisciplinary research include atmosphere/ocean sciences, computational life sciences and mathematical biology.

The appointments are at the level of assistant professor (“universitair docent”, lecturer), initially for a period of 5 years. A review takes place after 4 years. In case of a positive evaluation, the position becomes permanent.
The vacancies are part of an incentive by which twelve tenure track positions in mathematics will become available at Dutch universities and research institutes, made possible by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science via the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
Utrecht University specifically encourages female candidates to apply.
