Job description

The Computer Science Departments of the EEMCS Faculty of TU Delft invite applications for multiple Assistant (Tenure Track) or Associate Professor faculty positions. Successful candidates are expected to establish an independent research line in an emerging area in computer science that adds synergistically to our current research portfolio. We solicit applications from all computer science disciplines, with a preference for research that fits within the following areas: 

  1. Decision support; 
    focussing on devising, implementing and evaluating fundamental (classical and data-intensive) AI to improve the machine-level processes of planning, scheduling, negotiation, user-adaptation and user-harmonization.
  2. Data visualization and integration; 
    focussing on data science disciplines that enable humans to get insight into and to analyse complex (big, unstructured, distributed, heterogeneous, web) data, and into the AI decisions, actions and their consequences.
  3. Software systems engineering; 
    developing new ways to safeguard key quality attributes of complex software systems, such as robustness, reliability, and evolvability. It combines foundational (e.g. program semantics), empirical (software analytics), and AI (model learning, search-based software engineering) research.
  4. Distributed and Networked Systems; 
    aiming at devising, implementing and analysing fundamental algorithmic and systems concepts for distributed and networked systems, such as peer-to-peer systems, reputation systems, IoT and blockchain technology.

Candidates are expected to offer an inspirational contribution to the faculty’s educational programmes, such as the Bachelor Computer Science and Engineering and the Masters in Computer Science and Embedded Systems. The departments seek to continuously improve and innovate their educational offerings, for example through blended online and on campus learning. 

We offer a competitive starting package including one funded PhD student, excellent hardware and software facilities, adequate travel funds, and strong teaching support both through our highly qualified teaching team and  through a large pool of enthusiastic teaching assistants.



Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)


Candidates should have (1) a PhD degree in Computer Science or a closely related discipline, with outstanding academic credentials, (2) preferably several years of working experience as a Postdoctoral Researcher in an academic institution, and (3) the ambition to be a future scientific leader in one of the mentioned areas. Excellently qualified and more senior researchers are invited to respond as well and will be offered a rank in accordance with their experience. Dutch language skills are not required. We especially welcome applications from female scientists.

The Computer Science departments seek to become more inclusive -- for students, researchers, teachers, and anyone interacting with our departments. To that end, the departments have been instrumental in setting up the EEMCS Diversity and Inclusion Team (EDIT). All candidates are requested to submit a statement about the contributions they wish to make to strengthen diversity and inclusion of Computer Science at TU Delft. 

Conditions of employment

Fixed-term contract: Tenure.

At the start of the tenure-track you will be appointed as Assistant Professor for the duration of six years. Section leader, department leaders and you will agree upon expected performance and (soft) skills. You will receive formal feedback on performance and skills during annual assessment meetings and the mid-term evaluation. If the performance and skills are evaluated positively at the end of the tenure track, you will be appointed in a permanent Assistant Professor position.

TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

TU Delft sets specific standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. TU Delft offers training to improve English competency. Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. If you have less than five years of experience and do not yet have your teaching certificate, we allow you up to three years to obtain this.


Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the societal relevance of its research programmes. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs over 1100 people, including 225 permanent scientific staff and 500 PhD students. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics. The faculty is responsible for the bachelor and master education of over 4000 students, of which the majority is enrolled in Computer Science programs.

The Faculty includes two Computer Science Departments (Intelligent Systems and Software Technology). The two departments closely work together both in research and in education. The departments jointly employ 60 faculty members as well as 10 teaching faculty aimed at supporting the delivery of world class computer science education at substantial scale. 

The two departments conduct world leading research in the major computer science disciplines. Their research programs comprise a balanced mix of curiosity-driven foundational research, and use-inspired research in such application domains as health and well-being, creative industry, fintech, logistics, and energy. 

Located in a charming college town, TU Delft is the largest and oldest public technological university in the Netherlands. The university is regularly ranked among the most highly-rated worldwide for engineering and technology.
