Are you interested in creating intelligent systems that provide people with timely, relevant and reliable information? Systems that collaborate with users to better understand their needs, systems that analyze, represent and understand data in all formats and modalities, and learn how to best retrieve, summarize and communicate information to users? Are you passionate about research and education?
We are seeking a tenure track assistant professor interested in the development of intelligent information retrieval and recommender systems. Relevant experience includes, but is not limited to, search and ranking, content recommendation and analysis, machine learning for IR, semantics, dialogs, human factors and evaluation.
You will be joining a growing and vibrant team of colleagues within the Informatics Institute (IvI) of the University of Amsterdam who are tackling problems related to the development of data-driven AI technology, and in particular the Information Retrieval Lab, one of the leading groups in the field in Europe and World-wide. We are situated within Amsterdam’s larger artificial intelligence and data science ecosystem (e.g., Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI), Amsterdam Data Science (ADS), AI Technology for People, and the Hybrid Intelligence center)and value socially relevant, practice-informed and interdisciplinary research and outreach. The UvA is consistently ranked in the global top 50 for computer science and information systems (QS ranking).
Our team has a strong collaborative and collegial atmosphere. We strongly encourage applications coming from a unique perspective. Tell us how your background fits with the focus of this position, even if your profile is slightly different from the profile / requirements written below.

With over 6,000 employees, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is an intellectual hub within the Netherlands. Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted within seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry. Housed on four city campuses in or near the heart of Amsterdam, where disciplines come together and interact, the faculties have close links with thousands of researchers and hundreds of institutions at home and abroad.
The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and aren’t satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. To work at the UvA is to work in an independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.
The Faculty of Science has a student body of around 7,000, as well as 1,600 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain, or machines that display intelligent behavior.
The mission of the Informatics Institute is to perform curiosity-driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The main research themes are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science and Systems and Network Engineering. Our research involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on collaborative, data driven, computational and intelligent systems, all with a strong interactive component.
