We stand for life sciences and technology. High tech and human touch. Education and research that matter. New technology which leads change, innovation and progress in society. The UT is the only campus university of the Netherlands; divided over five faculties we provide more than fifty educational programmes. We have a strong focus on personal development and talented researchers are given scope for carrying out groundbreaking research.
EEMCS comprises three disciplines that shape Information and Communication Technology. ICT is more than communication. In almost every product we use mathematics, electronics and computer technology contributing to all of societies' activities. The faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. The research which enjoys a high profile both at home and internationally, has been accommodated in the multidisciplinary research institute CTIT.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. Because of our diversity values we do particularly support women to apply.

The faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS is looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic Assistant/Associate/Full Professors (f/m) in the area of Computer Architectures for Embedded Systems.

Embedded Systems are becoming more and more integrated within our daily lives. These systems should therefore have high performance, be ultimately reliable, flexible and consume as little power as possible. To satisfy these requirements, new computing architectures and techniques have to be explored in a broad area of research comprising of

  • Real Time Embedded Software
  • High level hardware description- and synthesis techniques
  • Low power architectures for signal processing
  • Reconfigurable architectures
  • Approximate computing
  • Circuit level digital design

Application areas of interest are telecommunication (5G, IoT) and radar, automotive, machine learning and data science.

Do you want to contribute to our research and education in one or multiple of the areas mentioned above?

The challenge

  • You will spend your time 50/50 on teaching and research, a reduced teaching load in the beginning years is the norm;
  • You will teach theoretical and more applied BSc/MSc courses in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering;
  • You will give lectures in English. Mastering the Dutch language is not a prerequisite, but naturally a long term goal;
  • We strongly encourage a high degree of responsibility and independence, while collaborating with close colleagues, researchers and other university staff.


  • You have a PhD-degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a related field;
  • You have scientific experience as a post-doc, assistant or associate professor, depending on the vacancy you are interested in. You preferably have international research experience;
  • You have an existing track record in the relevant areas shown by publications in high rank journals or strong evidence of high research potential;
  • You have good communication skills and experience with teaching and advising students;
  • You have, or are willing to acquire, a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) or equivalent;
  • You are fluent in English.

Are you up for the challenge to improve the world of Computer Science with your research as well as teaching in one of the most top-rated departments in the Netherlands?
