The Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) invites applications from excellent female researchers in the field of Logic and Computation for a MacGillavry Fellowship connected to a tenure track assistant professorship at the Faculty of Science. The position is planned on a tenure-track starting at assistant professor level, but for exceptionally qualified candidates, other arrangements at associate professor level can be negotiated.
ILLC participates in the recruitment programme at the Faculty of Science for top level female talent. This programme is named after the ground breaking crystallographer Carolina MacGillavry, an alumna of the University of Amsterdam. The MacGillavry Fellowships at the Faculty of Science are offered to women who excel in their discipline, who possess leadership potential and aspire to a career as a professor at the University of Amsterdam.
Based on performance indicators agreed on at the start of the appointment, the tenure track position will lead to a tenured position as associate professor in a period of maximally 5 years. The performance indicators will be tailored appropriately to the experience of the successful applicant. For tenure track candidates we have the following expectations, taking into account the general research:teaching = 60:40 ratio applicable at the ILLC:
Applicants have the following qualifications:
The successful candidate will be offered a tenure track agreement for five years and a temporary appointment that lasts one year longer. After a positive assessment of the criteria of the tenure track agreement, a permanent appointment as associate professor will be offered. For exceptionally qualified applicants who have the necessary qualifications, including an exceptionally strong research record, evidence of academic leadership as well as substantial funding acquisition, other arrangements on associate professorship-level can be negotiated.
Based on a full-time appointment (38 hours per week) and appointment at assistant professor level, the gross monthly starting salary will range from €3,475 to €5,405 depending on expertise and previous experience (salary scale 11 – 12). For associate professor level, the figures range from €4,815 to €6,438 gross per month (salary scale 13 – 14). The salary will be increased by 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus. The Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities is applicable. A favourable tax agreement, the 30% ruling, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The UvA offers a very attractive pension scheme.
The starting date of the appointment is September 2018.

With over 5,000 employees, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is an intellectual hub within the Netherlands. Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted within seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry. Housed on four city campuses in or near the heart of Amsterdam, where disciplines come together and interact, the faculties have close links with thousands of researchers and hundreds of institutions at home and abroad.
The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and aren’t satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. To work at the UvA is to work in an independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
The nstitute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC)invites applications from excellent female researchers in the field of Logic and Computation for a MacGillavry Fellowship connected to a tenure track assistant professorship at the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The position is planned on a tenure-track starting at assistant professor level, but for exceptionally qualified candidates, other arrangements at associate professor level can be negotiated.
The ILLC is a research institute at the UvA in which researchers from the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Humanities collaborate in an interdisciplinary context. ILLC hosts a leading research programme in Logic and Computation (LoCo) which strives to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of information and the processes of reasoning and interaction. In the tradition of Brouwer, Heyting and Beth, this broad aim leads to the investigation of foundational issues in mathematics and computer science. At one end of the spectrum we cover classical areas of mathematical logic and the foundations of mathematics, such as model theory, category theory, algebraic logic, and set theory. In theoretical computer science, we investigate fundamental problems in algorithmics and computational complexity, but also venture into new fields such as quantum computing and coalgebra. In AI, we contribute to the fields of multi-agent systems and knowledge representation. At the interface with other disciplines, including formal epistemology, economic theory, and cognitive science, we study the dynamics of interaction in groups of agents and problems of social choice. Transcending this diversity of research areas is a shared reliance on formal tools, including modal logic, game theory, and complexity theory.
We are looking for an excellent female researcher in the field of Logic and Computation. We are particularly interested in candidates who have a strong expertise in the design and use of formal methods in areas that relate to Mathematics or Computer Science, including AI. We welcome work in traditional areas as well as innovative research venturing into new themes. Preference will be given to excellence in research that has on the one hand a very clear connection to the research portfolio of the Logic and Computation group while it also has the potential to diversify it. The Institute's research is broader than that of the 'Logic and Computation' group, and while we expect the successful candidate to work within that group, we also expect the ability and willingness to interact with researchers from other parts of the ILLC's interdisciplinary environment.
The position will come with an ILLC start-up package consisting of:
