The Department of Imaging Physics at TU Delft invites applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) faculty position. Successful candidates are expected to establish an independent research line in an emerging area of imaging physics that adds synergistically to our current research portfolio. We are especifically interested in candidates that want to setup up a program in photonics and/or optical instrumentation targeting extreme light conditions. This can include, for instance, very low light or low signal-to-noise levels, or spatial confinement and application in metamaterial based instruments, or the use of coherence in for example interferometric approaches. While the relevance of this research is expected to be broad we see particular potential for impact in the fields of space optics and optics at low photon levels and foresee excellent opportunities for a strong connection with the Netherlands Institute for Space Research (SRON).

We offer starting faculty a competitive start-up package. A Tenure Track offers young, talented academics a clear and attractive career path leading up to a permanent appointment with the prospect of becoming an Associate or full Professor.

During the Tenure Track, you will have the opportunity to develop into an internationally acknowledged and recognized scientist. We offer a structured career and personal development program designed to offer individual academics as much support as possible. Parental leave and partner career advice are part of this support system. For more information about the Tenure Track and the personal development program, please visit https://www.tudelft.nl/en/faculty-of-applied-sciences/about-faculty/vacancies


We seek principal investigators with an outstanding scientific track record, researchers with a creative and collaborative mentality who appreciate scientific and engineering challenges in imaging physics and who, through their research, management skills, and teaching qualities can inspire co-workers and students alike. Successful candidates are expected to establish a strong, externally funded research program and to be committed to excellence in teaching at undergraduate (Dutch or English) as well as graduate level (English). Candidates are expected to be competitive in attracting personal (amongst others ERC funded) grants. Applicants should hold a PhD with several years of additional experience in a postdoctoral or industrial position. Dutch language skills are not required. We especially welcome applications from female scientists.


At the start of the tenure-track you will be appointed as Assistant Professor for the duration of six years. Section leader, department leaders and you will agree upon expected performance and (soft) skills. You will receive formal feedback on performance and skills during annual assessment meetings and the mid-term evaluation. If the performance and skills are evaluated positively at the end of the tenure track, you will be appointed in a permanent Assistant Professor position.

TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

TU Delft sets specific standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. TU Delft offers training to improve English competency.

Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. If you have less than five years of experience and do not yet have your teaching certificate, we allow you up to three years to obtain this.
