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.

Within the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EWI), the department of Radio Systems (RS) is looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Assistant Professor (f/m) in Signal Processing for Communications.

Research in telecommunications is continuously fueling the advent of new generations of systems with ever growing capabilities. The EWI department of the University of Twente (UT) has a strong position in research of the physical layer of telecommunication systems, ranging from low data-rates (Internet-of-Things) to high data-rates (5G, evolving into 6G). The subjects that we research and teach are

  • Channel modeling
  • Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO)
  • Signal processing algorithms and efficient realizations (in both the analog and digital domains)
  • System level design.

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 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science;
  • You will give lectures in English. Mastering the Dutch language is not a prerequisite, but naturally a long term goal;
  • A high degree of responsibility and independence, while collaborating with close colleagues, researchers and other university staff is strongly encouraged.


  • You hold a PhD in Electrical Engineering, or a related field;
  • 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;
