Houtlaan, Nijmegen, Gelderland
Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht
Uren per week:
32 - 40 uur
€ 8371 - € 8371 per maand


You will be responsible for leading an independent research group, which includes establishing and maintaining an internationally competitive research programme that fits on with IMM's research, acquisition of research funding, possibly in collaboration with external academic and/or industrial partners, and supervision and guidance of PhD candidates and scientific staff. Your teaching activities will be part of the Education Institute for Molecular Sciences (which is responsible for the Bachelor's degree programmes in Chemistry, Molecular Life Sciences and Science, and the Master's degree programme in Molecular Sciences) with a focus on teaching in Materials Science and/or Inorganic Chemistry.


IMM wishes to further build upon its world-leading research in the area of complex molecular systems and to expand its activities towards molecular materials science. Topics might include studying self-organisation in organic/inorganic or biologically inspired systems and modulating their function and properties, adaptive out-of-equilibrium systems and materials, or the design of organic/inorganic materials and interfaces with dynamic properties. A wider focus could also underpin teaching in materials chemistry and organic/inorganic chemistry. The ideal candidate for this position is a physical chemist or soft matter scientist who has a PhD degree in chemistry or physics and aims to design, create and understand dynamic complex molecular systems.

We are therefore looking for:
  • An enthusiastic and entrepreneurial scientist with an excellent track record and the potential to conduct research in the field of dynamic organic/inorganic molecular materials and to initiate a novel, internationally recognised research area within IMM.
  • A researcher who is willing to participate in projects of a multidisciplinary nature and who is willing to cooperate and represent our institute in national and international research organisations and networks.
  • An inspirational lecturer with proven teaching skills and experience with modern ways of conveying knowledge.
  • An academic with proven managerial and organisational experience who will contribute to the administrative and organisational tasks of the Faculty of Science, the IMM research institute, and the study programmes they offer.


  • Employment: 32 - 40 hours per week.
  • A maximum gross monthly salary of € 8,371 based on a 38-hour working week (salary scale H2).
  • The exact salary depends on the candidate's qualifications and amount of relevant professional experience.
  • In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • Duration of the contract: indefinite period.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
  • Have a look at our excellent employment conditions. They include a good work-life balance (among other things because of the excellent leave arrangements), opportunities for development and a great pension scheme.
Radboud University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and as such particularly encourages applications from women and minorities.
