Job description

The Applied Probability group is looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic Assistant Professor. Depending on the candidate’s qualities, an appointment at the level of Associate Professor can be considered. His/her responsibilities include:

• research in the area of probability theory, preferably in the area of interacting particle systems, mathematical statistical physics.
• supervising Bachelor and Master students in their graduation projects.

Educational responsibilities include service teaching (general introductory mathematics courses), and teaching courses in the areas of stochastic processes or Mathematical Finance at the undergraduate (minor in Finance) as well as the master's level. 

In addition, the candidate is expected to be active in acquiring and managing externally funded research projects.

A Tenure Track, a process leading up to a permanent appointment with the prospect of becoming an Associate or full Professor, offers young, talented academics a clear and attractive career path. During the Tenure Track, you will have the opportunity to develop into an internationally acknowledged and recognised academic. We offer a structured career and personal development programme designed to offer individual academics as much support as possible. For more information about the Tenure Track and the personal development programme, please visit


Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)


The candidate should be a university graduate with a PhD in Mathematics (with specialization probability theory). He/she has a proven track record in his/her research field with a specific emphasis on probability as evidenced by refereed publications in high-quality journals.
The candidate is an enthusiastic team player, is able to make significant contributions to research,  and has excellent teaching skills. .

Conditions of employment

Fixed-term contract: Tenure Track.

At the start of the tenure-track you will be appointed as Assistant Professor for the duration of six years. Department chair, section heads 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.

Technische Universiteit Delft

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.


Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

Research at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) centres around the study of mathematical models arising in science and engineering. This research is both fundamental and applied in nature, and is often inspired by technical applications. The department plays an active role in translating research results into concrete, practical applications. It maintains intensive contacts with other TU Delft departments, the major technological institutes, and the research laboratories of major companies. Within its own subject field, the department provides teaching for the Applied Mathematics BSc and MSc programmes, and also contributes to the teaching of mathematics courses within other academic programmes at the TU Delft and within national programmes such as “MasterMath”.

The Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics consists of six research groups: Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Numerical Analysis, Applied Probability, Statistics, and Optimisation. More information about the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics can be found at

The Applied Probability group is one of the key research groups at Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM), which forms an integral part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS). The group performs a broad spectrum of research in the areas mathematical statistical physics, interacting particle systems, ergodic theory, finance and risk. 

An important common theme of the institute it partial differential equations. The candidate preferably has a research area in probability that connects to the area interacting particle systems and their connections with partial differential equations such as e.g. (but not limited to) hydrodynamic limits, large deviations, fluctuation fields, and singular stochastic partial differential equations such as the KPZ equation.
