TT Fellowships at University of Amsterdam

The Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam attaches great importance to the recruitment and successful development of excellent young scientists within the research and teaching staff. As part of this drive, we are initiating a new recruitment programme for top level female talent, named after the ground breaking crystallographer Carolina MacGillavry, an UvA alumnus. In the first round of this programme we offer 5 MacGillavry fellowships (tenure track).

For these fellowships we are seeking women that excel in one of the faculty’s disciplines, who possess leadership potential and aspire to a career as a professor at the University of Amsterdam. The fellowship comprises a tenure track, whereby the fellow starts as assistant professor (UD) in a temporary position, with the prospect of a permanent appointment as associate professor (UHD) as well as a subsequent career path leading to a full professorship. Depending on the fellow’s qualifications, entrance at a higher level is also possible.

We offer our Fellows first and foremost an inspiring and challenging scientific environment in one of Europe’s leading cities, a centre of great cultural and scientific activity. The MacGillavry Fellows can count on excellent guidance and support in their scientific, teaching and academic leadership development. The fellowship is accompanied by a suitable scientific start-up package, and assistance is available concerning issues such as partner job-search, child care and accommodation.

The scientific disciplines of the Faculty are:
• Biological Science and Biomedical Science
• Earth Sciences (Physical Geography)
• Informatics and Logic
• Physics
• Chemistry
• Astronomy
• Mathematics and Statistics
