Are you a Mathematician working in applied analysis or scientific computing (including data science, machine learning, networks, complex systems, imaging, high performance computing, and mathematical biology)? Then you might be interested in the position of Assistant Professor in Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of Utrecht University.


You will play a committed role in all aspects of academic life. Ideally, your eligibility is exemplified by:

  • a PhD in mathematics or related discipline;
  • significant research achievements and promise for the future;
  • track record of international publications in leading journals;
  • high potential for the acquisition of external research funds;
  • an affinity for applications of mathematics and multidisciplinary collaboration;
  • readiness to supervise postdocs and/or PhD students;
  • a committed role in (inter-)national activities in scientific and/or societal communities;
  • commitment towards teaching and student supervision;
  • ability to teach in and develop teaching material for Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Mathematics, based on an in-depth understanding of current developments in the field;
  • ideas about organising events, such as research conferences, workshops and seminars;
  • willingness to acquire a working knowledge of the Dutch language within the first two years of the appointment.
In view of our policy to improve the gender balance we strongly encourage women to apply.


The appointment is at the level of Assistant Professor, initially for a period of 5 years. The position will be subject to a mid-term evaluation after approximately 2.5 years and an end-term evaluation. Following a positive evaluation the position will become permanent after 5 years. In case of sufficient seniority, the position can be tenured at a higher level.

Female candidates will be considered for a Westerdijk Fellowship, an attractive startup package created by the Faculty of Science in order to increase its number of female scientists. The Fellowships are named after Johanna Westerdijk, appointed in 1917 on the chair of Plant Pathology at Utrecht, who was the first female professor in The Netherlands.

The gross salary – depending on previous qualifications and experience - ranges between €3,637 and €4,987 (scale 11 according to the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities) per month for a full-time employment. Salaries are supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8% and a year-end bonus of 8.3% per year. We offer a pension scheme, collective insurance schemes and flexible employment conditions (multiple choice model).

Facilities for sports and child care are available on our campus, which is only 15 minutes away from the historical city centre of Utrecht. Utrecht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, with a charming old centre and an internationally oriented culture that is strongly influenced by its centuries-old university. Utrecht city has been consistently ranked as one of the most attractive cities to live in the Netherlands.

For international employees the University offers help with finding housing, child care and schools, as well as a partner programme and a Dutch language course.
