Job description

Within the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS), the Department of Applied Mathematics has a vacancy for an Assistant/Associate Professor (f/m) in one of our focus areas: Computational Science, Data Science, and Operations Research.

We seek a talented individual to strengthen our department in any one of the above areas, with the hope to expand the current strengths of the department in new directions as well. We invite interested candidates to consider if Twente is a potential match for them by visiting our websites for the computational science cluster (contact J.J.W. van der Vegt), and for the Operations Research and Data Science cluster (contact Prof.dr.
