Within the cluster SACS, whose research focusses on system theory, analysis, and numerical analysis, we are looking for a highly talented research scientist with a real passion for teaching. You have a strong affinity with mathematical analysis and are focussed on the development, analysis and application of complex systems and networks, such as approximation or control for models described by large scale ordinary and/or partial differential equations. In addition, you have the capability to develop collaboration between mathematics and related disciplines. These collaborations are established through one of the research institutes, i.e., CTIT institute on ICT, MESA+ institute for Nanotechnology, or MIRA institute for biomedical technology and technical medicine.

It is important that you can build a characteristic own research line within complex systems for which external funding, such as the NWO Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (VENI/VIDI/VICI) and within the European Research Council can be acquired.

The University of Twente (UT) is seeking for a researcher with an excellent record in Mathematics and its applications in Science and Engineering for a Faculty position in Complex Systems within the Department of Applied Mathematics. Is that you?

The University of Twente. 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 University of Twente 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.

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) 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 and ICT now contributes 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 institutes MESA+, CTIT and MIRA.
