6 Macgillavry Fellowships at University of Amsterdam

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a master scholarship in earth sciences at University of Amsterdam. The initial contract for this position is six years. This position is closed on February 04, 2019.

The Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam (UvA)attaches great importance to the contribution of female scientists in research and education.

The MacGillavry Fellowship is directed at talented women. You are strongly encouraged to apply if you have a strong track record in one of the Faculty's scientific disciplines and at the same time have the potential and ambition to obtain a leadership position as professor at the University of Amsterdam.

The University of Amsterdam is a university with an internationally acclaimed profile, located in the heart of the Dutch capital. As well as a world centre for business and research, Amsterdam is a hub of cultural and media activities. We are a member of the League of European Research Universities.

Working with us means working in an inspiring, challenging, creative and international environment, with an open atmosphere and close ties to the city and society.

The Faculty of Science, located at the inspiring Amsterdam Science Park, has a leading position internationally in its fields of research and participates in a large number of collaborative programmes with other universities, research institutes and businesses. The Faculty has a student body of around 7,000 and 1,600 members of staff, spread over eight research institutes and several Faculty-wide support services. A considerable part of our research is made possible by external funding from Dutch and international organisations as well as the private sector. We offer eleven Bachelor’s degree programmes and nineteen Master's degree programmes in the fields of the exact sciences, informatics and life and earth sciences.

Each MacGillavry Fellow will initially be appointed as an assistant professor on a temporary contract for six years. During this period you are expected to set up your own independent research programme hosted by one of the Faculty's research institutes. You are expected to publish in high-profile journals, attract your own external funding and contribute to the teaching programmes within the Faculty of Science. We offer mentoring and courses to help you meet the requirements. Key performance indicators in both research and education will be monitored and will serve as input for a transparent evaluation process, which will lead to a decision as regards tenure. Assuming your tenure track is successful, you will be offered a permanent staff position as an associate professor. A subsequent personal career path towards a full professorship can be mutually agreed upon.

We are also happy to consider applications from women with a more senior profile than that of assistant professor. In that case, reduction in the length of the tenure track and/or entry at associate professor level are possibilities that can be tailor-made.

To apply for the MacGillavry Fellowship you are invited to use the application form on the MacGillavry website of the Faculty of Science.

The deadline for all applications is 4 February 2019.#LI-DNP
