Published Deadline Location
18 May 31 Jul Eindhoven
We have an excellent opportunity for an applied mathematician working at the forefront of Scientific Computing to join us as Tenure-Track Assistant Professor. This vacancy is part of the Irène Curie Fellowship and is currently open only for female candidates.

Job description

The Center for Analysis, Scientific Computing, and Applications (CASA) is part of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Eindhoven University of Technology.
CASA conducts research and provides undergraduate and graduate education in theoretical and numerical analysis, with a wide range of applications.

Within CASA, the Computational Science group focuses on numerical methods for (partial) differential equations, model order reduction, and scientific machine learning, particularly for the efficient solution of differential equations in the context of data assimilation, control, optimization, inverse problems, Bayesian methods, uncertainty quantification, and optimal experimental design.  For this position, we are looking for an applied mathematician with expertise in one or more of these fields, and an interest in exploring connections not only to current developments in applied mathematics, but also to applications through academic and industrial collaborations in fields such as medicine, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, geophysics, and others. 

Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS)

With over 100 (assistant, associate and full) professors, almost 200 PhD and PDEng students, about 1100 Bachelor students and 600 Master students, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS) is the largest department of the TU/e. By performing top-level fundamental and applied research, and maintaining strong ties with industry, M&CS aims to contribute to science and to innovation in and beyond the region.

This is reflected in a rich portfolio of projects and grants that our professors attract (including ERC and national level personal grants, H2020, NWO, and industry co-funded projects). M&CS is offering high-quality educational programs including multiple Bachelor and Master programs, all fully taught in English.

The department's relationship with the high-tech industry in the Brainport region means that interested staff and students can contribute directly to the development of technological innovations with real-world relevance. The department has produced a number of successful spin-offs and participates in many national and international research consortia.

An important aspect of TU/e's vision on education is that research and education go hand in hand, both at Bachelor and Master level. The TU/e helps its scientific staff to further develop their teaching skills by offering a training program that leads to an official teaching certification from Dutch Universities (Basic Teaching Qualification).
