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?
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 are intelligent data interpretation focusing on the strengths of advanced methods from computational science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to extract meaningful information from very large and very complex analytical data sets, the interpretation of data obtained from systems that combine highly efficient (multi-dimensional) separations with high-resolution (tandem) mass spectrometry. Collaborations are foreseen between analytical chemistry and computational science and with life-science fields.
Prior research experience at the interface of analytical and computational sciences is especially valued for this position. However, the position is also open to candidates with a strong track record in analytical sciences (especially separations or mass spectrometry) or computational chemistry (including AI, data science and modelling). 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 analytical techniques and/or 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.
