Assistant Professor Coding Theory at Eindhoven University of Technology

A new opening professor position in discrete mathematics is available at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands. This fellowship is last for five years and posible to extend. Applications will be evaluated on a continuous basis.

The Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) group of the Discrete Mathematics (DM) section of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS) at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) intends to fill a full-time position for a (tenure-track) assistant professor in Coding Theory.

Coding Theory is the mathematical theory of encoding information in such a way that it becomes resistant totransmission errors. Topics are the development and study of various codes as well as the construction ofefficient decoding algorithms for these codes. Coding theory has a strong interplay with algebra, numbertheory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, algorithms, complexity theory, and cryptography. TU/e has astrong history in mathematical coding theory with van Lint, van Tilborg, Brouwer, Pellikaan, and Blokhuis.

Coding theory research at TU/e spans from the study of towers of function fields for asymptotically optimalalgebraic-geometry codes to the use of codes in building or attacking post-quantum cryptography. Research within the Discrete Mathematics (DM) section involves Coding Theory and Cryptology(CC, Tanja Lange), Combinatorial Optimization (CO, Frits Spieksma), and Discrete Algebra and Geometry (DAG, Hans Cuypers). The CC group consists of one full professor (Lange), two associateprofessors (Schoenmakers and de Weger), two assistant professors (Hlsing and Pellikaan). CCprovides undergraduate and graduate courses in cryptology, coding theory, algebra and numbertheory, as well as service teaching. The assistant professor in Coding Theory is expected to have a proven track record in mathematicalcoding theory and should have a deep and broad insight in the research domain. This should besupported by a strong publication record and other tokens of international recognition such asinvited presentations, grants, and membership in program committees or editorial boards. Thecandidate is expected to contribute to the research themes within the CC group. Code-based cryptography is an interesting area in post-quantum cryptography and the CC group isinternationally leading in this area.


The assistant professor is expected to The department seeks to appoint a mathematician who is passionate about research as well asteaching and welcomes excellent candidates who can contribute to the area of MathematicalCoding Theory and have the potential for the acquisition of external research funds. An importantaspect of The TU/e's vision on education is that research and education go hand in hand, both atBachelor and at Master level. Next to research, education is an important part of the job.

The TU/e helps its scientific staff to further develop their teaching skills by offering a trainingprogram that leads to an official teaching certification from Dutch Universities (Basic QualificationTeaching). The working language in the department and across the university is English. The levelof English proficiency should be at least C1. There is no requirement to speak Dutch for applying forthis position.

In particular, the candidate should have: We offer a position in a successful and internationally-oriented department. The city of Eindhovenoffers a relaxed, multicultural environment, high quality of life and many options for extracurricularactivities. The city has a mild climate, and it is well-connected by rail, air, and road linkswith major European cities. The city is at the heart of the Brainport region of Netherlands, a regionwith high growth, high innovation, and many permanent employment opportunities for expats.

Candidates moving to the Netherlands from abroad may qualify for a tax incentive scheme, where30% of your income is tax free for a (maximum) period of five years. Click here for moreinformation.

Salary will be based on background and working experience and according to the Collective LabourAgreement Dutch Universities (CAO NU). An Assistant Professor gross salary is in the range of 3.637,- to 5.656,- per month (on a full-time basis). Additionally, TU/e offers a yearly holidayallowance of 8% of the yearly salary and a yearly end year allowance of 8.3% of the yearly salary.In addition we offer a pension scheme, partially paid parental leave, flexible employment

conditions, the possibility to participate in a collective health care plan, and other benefits(including an excellent technical infrastructure, moving expenses, savings schemes, child care andexcellent on campus sports facilities). The decision of offering the position as tenure track assistant professor or tenured assistantprofessor will be made based on the qualification of the candidate. A tenure track position is atemporary position for five years which will become permanent after a positive evaluation of thecandidate after five years. All assistant professors on tenure track are appointed with the ultimategoal of becoming associate professor.
