Two Full Professors of Mathematics, Utrecht, The Netherlands

Deadline: August 1, 2012

ARGOMENTI: International Area

The Mathematical Institute of Utrecht University invites applications for Two Full Professors of Mathematics (0.8 - 1.0 fte)
It is anticipated that one appointment will be made in the section of Fundamental Mathematics - currently comprising algebra, analysis and geometry -, and one in the section of Mathematical Modelling - currently comprising applied analysis, stochastics and mathematics of computation. The search, however, is not limited to the listed areas and, furthermore, in case of exceptional candidates, both appointments may be made in the same section.

We are looking for outstanding candidates who will invigorate and enrich the pool of expertise in the Institute and the university at large. The Institute has a long-standing tradition of crossing borders into other scientific fields. interdisciplinary activity includes, but is not limited to, theoretical physics, theoretical biology, and life sciences.

Appointees are expected to play an active role in all aspects of academic life. Candidates should demonstrate excellence in research, including grant-earning capacity, and be skilled in teaching and student supervision. Furthermore, we expect a willingness to take up administrative responsibilities. The appointments are, in principle, permanent, at the level of full professor on a "Core Chair". However, the Institute may offer more junior candidates of exceptional promise a "Profile Chair", which is subject to review after a 5-year period.

Utrecht University specifically encourages female candidates to apply.

Closing date for applications: August 1, 2012
