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.
What are you going to do?
The study of Urban Informatics refers to creating, applying and using information and communication technology and data to measure, analyse and predict urban processes and phenomena and spans a broad range of areas in computer science/informatics, including the development of sensor systems and networks to capture information about the urban environment and its inhabitants. These sensors generate data that can be analyzed and processed using computational/AI techniques to forecast and predict changes in the urban structure. Finally, new understanding can be developed by building theories and models using the data from such sensors in order to capture the dynamics of the environment and the people. This new understanding can then be applied to intervene with the urban system and ideally inform operational and strategic policy.
We are looking for a scientist working in urban informatics using simulation-based science, with a focus on using data and sensors to develop computational models to increase the understanding of urban phenomena. This may relate to questions about social processes, the design of infrastructure, or new ways to tackle urban growth. You are expected to contribute to fundamental research on urban informatics, with new modelling paradigms and techniques and/or new ways to collect and use urban data for building computational models. The big challenge will be to develop new understanding and new computational techniques that can help cities and governments plan for the future.
What do we require?
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.
