Multiple faculty positions in Science at the UvA

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.  

The positions

The Faculty of Science has launched a sizeable investment programme that contains a substantial number of new faculty positions for talented scientists in the fields of Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics. The new positions will allow us to connect to exciting new fundamental developments both within and across the disciplines. 

Diversity and Synergy 

The UvA is an equal-opportunity employer. We prioritise diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We value a spirit of enquiry and perseverance, provide the space to keep asking questions, and promote a culture of curiosity and creativity. The Faculty of Science has a solid track record for attracting female talent to junior faculty positions through its recurring MacGillavry Fellowship programme. Also for the ‘Connecting Science’ campaign it is our goal to fill a substantial fraction of the positions by female talent.

‘Connecting Science’ also strives to exploit opportunities for synergy through new interdisciplinary research subjects. Several of the positions will lead to joint appointments between two research institutes or to incorporate interdisciplinary aspects within their own research area. Over the past years, we have gained positive experience with such joint faculty appointments, where the interdisciplinary connections have helped to open numerous impactful research areas.
