Job description

The Department of Applied Mathematics (AM) at the University of Twente (UT) is seeking to appoint two enthusiastic lecturers in (applied) mathematics who are passionate about guiding young students, both in applied mathematics and in other disciplines ranging from Industrial Design Engineering to Applied Physics, in mastering mathematical subjects such as calculus, linear algebra, statistics as taught in most technical programmes.

In this position, you will take part in service teaching and you will also teach subjects in the BSc AM programme that are close to your (research) interest. Supervision of BSc and MSc students may be part of the job. Many bachelor and almost all master programmes at the UT are taught in English.


University of Twente (UT)


  • You have a PhD degree in mathematics or in a related subject, and some experience in teaching mathematics. Examples that we have in mind are recent graduates, high school teachers with first degree teaching qualification, but also researchers who want to gain teaching experience.
  • You are open minded towards modern views on teaching and learning. You are a creative teacher who can help us with educational challenges/opportunities such as the current use of remote teaching due to the Corona crisis. The university has a focus on project-based learning. We expect that you will continue to shape your professional development as a lecturer. To facilitate the professional development and quality of teaching, all lecturers are required to acquire the University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) within two years of their appointment, unless they already have an equivalent qualification.
  • Finally, you are a great teammate with excellent interpersonal skills and are proficient in English. Proficiency in Dutch is a plus but not required.

Conditions of employment

  • We have two 0.8-1 fte Lecturer positions available with an initial contract for 2 years. One position is in principle temporary. For the other position you will, near the end of the contract, be subject to a job performance evaluation. If positive and the circumstances of the organization remain the same, your contract will be converted into a permanent contract.
  • In case of a strong record in research, a small portion of the position dedicated to research is negotiable (max. 20%).
  • Our terms of employment are in accordance with the Dutch Collective Labor Agreement for Universities (CAO) and include a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary and a year-end bonus of 8.3 %.
  • Depending on your relevant background and experience, the gross monthly salary on a full-time basis ranges from € 2.846,- € to € 5.230,- per month (scale 10/11).
  • Further growth towards a more senior position with a maximum of € 5.943,- per month is possible if you possess ample experience in additional tasks like independent development of educational units.
  • Furthermore, we offer excellent professional and personal development programs and a secondary remuneration package including a travel allowance.
  • Finally, you will work in a lively, inspiring and dynamic working environment in an organization focusing on internationalization and a high degree of responsibility and independence.
Are you passionate about improving the learning experience of students? Then apply now!
