Tenure track position for Assistant professor Department Econometrics and Operations Research

Published Deadline Location
28 Feb 24 May Tilburg

Job description

Tilburg University is not only situated next to a beautiful forest, but it is also conveniently located next to the train station that bears its name, near shops and cafeterias, and is only one train stop away from the Tilburg city center.

 

Our university is an inspiring and highly international community of faculty and students. It is one of the best universities in the Netherlands and in Europe, both in education and research, as evidenced by both our rankings and the increase in the number of students every year. Our department, the Department of Econometrics and Operations Research, is part of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management.  The department has 45 faculty members and 35 PhD students. We are responsible for the Bachelor in Econometrics and Operations Research, a selective program for highly motivated students with strong quantitative skills. We also provide three master programs in the fields of Econometrics and Mathematical Economics, Quantitative Finance and Actuarial Science, and Business Analytics and Operations Research, all of which benefit from a great reputation in industry and academia, and offer a great launching pad for a highly paid quantitative analyst job in the Netherlands and abroad.

 

We are responsible for teaching many quantitative courses in all bachelor programs of our School of Economics and Management, in the Research Master in Economics and Business, and in the new Data Science Bachelor, a recent joint venture with the Technical University Eindhoven. Our department benefits from an excellent international reputation in both education and in fundamental research in a wide range of quantitative areas such as econometrics, economics, operations research, quantitative finance, actuarial science, mathematical economics, game theory and applied mathematics.

 

Job description

We invite applications for a Tenure Track position at the level of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate is expected to start around 1st September 2019. The position will have a reduced teaching load (30%) during the tenure track period.

Requirements

We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague who has completed a PhD degree in  operations research, industrial engineering, or a related discipline, has one or more top publication(s) in the field of OR, and is an excellent teacher, as witnessed, for example, by favorable teaching evaluations or awards.

 

Although we encourage applications in all areas of Operations Research, our department is particularly looking to increase its strength in machine learning, business analytics, and high-performance computing.

Conditions of employment

We offer a tenure track position for six years.  The position comes with an attractive job package that features benefits including pension benefits, insurance discounts, ample vacation days, and end-of-year bonuses, to mention but a few. The position can become tenured after six years if the candidate satisfies the tenure requirements of the department of Econometrics and Operations Research. The gross salary is largely determined by the Dutch labor agreement (CAO) for universities, namely scale 11/12 in the VSNU salary table, but we aim to offer a competitive salary within this framework.
