We invite applications for both junior (tenure-track) and senior faculty positions. Research in the Department of Bionanoscience is aimed at a quantitative, mechanistic understanding of how interactions at the nanoscale lead to biological function at the cellular scale. Having established major strengths in single-molecule biophysics, nanotechnology, synthetic biology, and microbiology, the Department is particularly eager to further expand in the area of quantitative (mammalian) cell biology. We welcome research proposals in areas such as chromatin/DNA/RNA biology, organelle biology, developmental biology, advanced sequencing approaches, and advanced imaging techniques. However, other areas of quantitative biology that complement and strengthen our current research efforts will also be considered. Attractive start-up packages are offered at all levels of seniority.
A Tenure Track, a process leading up to a permanent appointment with the prospect of becoming an Associate or full Professor, offers young, talented academics a clear and attractive career path. 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 support as possible. For more information about the Tenure Track and the personal development programme, please visit www.tudelft.nl/tenuretrack.
We seek group leaders with an outstanding scientific track record, researchers with a creative and collaborative mentality who appreciate scientific and engineering challenges in quantitative life sciences 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 programme and to be committed to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate (Dutch or English) and graduate level (English). We especially welcome applications from female scientists. Applicants should hold a PhD. Dutch language skills are not required.
The maximum salary for an Assistant Professor is € 5513 per month gross, for an Associate Professor, € 6567 and for a Full Professor, € 9563. Terms of employment and length of contract vary according to the position.
The 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.
The TU Delft sets specific standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. The 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.
