The candidate should possess (or have a clear ambition to obtain) broad expertise in the field of Transport and Logistics at a system level, and she or he is expected to have a multidisciplinary attitude.

We expect that you have the potential to grow towards an Associate Professor and/or Full Professor role in the future.

Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. We expect you to obtain a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) within three years if you have less than five years of teaching experience. This is provided by the TU Delft UTQ programme.
