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?
Organizations increasingly find the need to share data to accomplish common goals no single organization can achieve on its own. However, in absence of trust, organizations are reluctant to share data and want to be ensured that data is only used for the purpose for which it is shared but not for other purposes. Examples for such use cases can be found in science (life sciences), industry (predictive maintenance, health), and society (smart city, decision support on crowd management) projects.
Separating data networks from development platforms via a Data Exchange (DX) enables data owners and algorithm developers to dynamically create contracts arranging conditions and establishment of the value that can be traded. As a particular way to organize data exchange for AI development, we introduced the concept of a Digital Data Marketplace (DDM). A DDM enables an ecosystems of sovereign organization to implement data exchanges based on community rules and members creating agreements that can be enforced and audited as a means to reduce risk, allowing trust to emerge. In this position you will work in close collaboration with several initiatives and (funded) projects stimulating the development of data exchange facilities.
What do we require?
- A PhD degree in Computer Science;
- 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 security data, virtualization, authorisation, blockchain;
- proven leadership in secure distributed data processing systems;
- teaching experience at university level and demonstrable didactic abilities;
- 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;
- excellent communication and social skills;
- 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.
This position is offered with the opportunity for a joint-appointment with industry. The joint appointment program creates an extra opportunity for the candidate to work for part of their time (typically one day per week) directly for a company. If accepted by the candidate and the company, this will create multiple benefits for all parties. It allows the candidate to have greater impact for their research output via the company, which can bring research results to real-life. The candidate can experience industrial research and be adequately compensated. Moreover, the candidate is in a unique position to help build a close collaboration between the university and the company, fostering a collaborative environment and creating opportunities for joint PhD research programs.
