The UvA’s Faculty of Science is launching a major recruitment campaign called ‘Connecting Science’ in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Our ambition is to attract top talent from all over the world to a large number of newly created faculty positions in a wide range of exciting scientific directions. We offer a stimulating environment and excellent conditions for research, tightly connected to challenging educational programmes.
We are looking for ambitious and motivated scientists to connect different scientific disciplines. Our goal is to have a maximal impact on science and society.
Chemistry in the 21st century can greatly benefit from the current developments in the information sciences. In particular, advances in computational science and artificial intelligence create exciting possibilities in chemistry.
Examples include the design of faster, more-sustainable and more-efficient reactions and synthetic processes, the development of machine learning techniques to augment classical skills and knowledge in synthesis planning, in combination with computational chemistry and multi-scale techniques to predict reaction performance or multivariate (catalytic) reaction optimization using AI. Collaborations are foreseen with organic-chemistry and catalysis groups, as well as with computational scientists.
This position, however is open to candidates with a strong track record in related other topics in the broad field that connects organic synthesis with artificial intelligence, data science and modelling in chemistry. Candidates will be selected on their scientific track record and on their vision for future research, as well as on their teaching achievement, qualifications, and vision for future teaching.
What do we require?
- A relevant PhD degree in Chemistry;
- excellent research skills, evidenced by a track record of publications in renowned international conferences and journals, and contributed and/or invited talks at international conferences/workshops;
- a strong background, experience and expertise in research in the foundations of organic synthesis as well as computational sciences;
- teaching experience at university level and demonstrable didactic abilities;
- an active and enthusiastic contribution to teaching at the BSc and MSc level, involving activities in basic education, as well as research-related specialized courses in programs offered by the institute;
- preferably some experience with the (co-)supervision of BSc, MSc and/or PhD students;
- (the ability to develop) the management skills required for general academic administration, organisational and coordination tasks;
- the ability to attract external funding;
- good command of English and willingness to learn the Dutch language.
International research experience is preferred as is a highly collaborative and enthusiastic approach.
We offer you a tenure-track agreement for five years (which is part of a six-year temporary appointment). At the start, we will draw up an agreement with you, specifying the tenure-track requirements for research, teaching and management tasks that need to be fulfilled in order to assess progress after three years and after five years. The requirements in this agreement are negotiable and depend on your experience and scientific profile. Following a positive assessment after five years the appointment will become permanent.
Start dates are negotiable. The positions will be filled at the level of Assistant or Associate professor, depending on qualifications. The starting salary will be in accordance with university regulations for academic personnel, and depending on experience and qualifications. It will range from a minimum of €3,637 up to a maximum of €6,738 gross per month (salary scale 11-14) based on full-time employment. This is exclusive 8 % holiday allowance and 8.3 % end-of-year bonus. A favorable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.
