Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science at the UvA 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.
The Anton Pannekoek Institute has a long tradition of excellence in astronomical research. Scientists at the institute have access to a wide variety of telescopes on the ground and in space, including ESO, ESA, SRON (the Dutch Space Research Organization (http://www.sron.nl), and ASTRON (http://www.astron.nl
) facilities. Science Park, where API is located, also hosts SURF, the Dutch national High Performance Computing centre with fast-track access possibilities. API astronomers can apply to national funding lines at the Dutch research organization NWO, and to European funding lines like the ERC grants and the Horizon Europe programs and networks. API is part of the Dutch Top Research School NOVA (http://www.nova-astronomy.nl).
The Anton Pannekoek Institute is committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity; we particularly encourage applicants from groups that are underrepresented in the physical sciences, and who can enhance the diversity of backgrounds and ideas in our department.
