Job description

Within the faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS), the Department of Applied Mathematics has a vacancy for one new Assistant Professor (f/m) in mathematical statistics with focus on theory for machine learning.

We invite interested candidates to explore whether Twente is a potential match, via [the website of the mathematics department]( and [the website of the statistics group!]( We particularly encourage women to apply.

As an Assistant Professor
  • You develop your own identity as a mathematician and are encouraged to attract national or European research grants to support your research line;
  • You are actively involved in teaching and contribute to the development of our curriculum;
  • The lectures are in English. Mastering the Dutch language is not a prerequisite, but naturally a long term goal;
  • Young staff members spend the first few years of their employment 33% on teaching and 67% research; later, the standard division is 50/50.


University of Twente (UT)


  • You hold a PhD in Mathematics or a closely related field;
  • You have an existing track record in research in one of the relevant areas, shown by publications in high rank journals, or otherwise strong evidence of high research potential;
  • You have good communication skills and you are an inspiring teacher;
  • You have an excellent command of the English Language.

Conditions of employment

  • We offer an excellent and stimulating scientific environment with an attractive campus and plenty of facilities for sports and leisure. The university provides a dynamic ecosystem with hardworking colleagues in which internationalization is an important part of the strategic agenda. On the campus, there are plenty of possibilities for interdisciplinary collaborations;
  • A structural position, starting with a temporary appointment with the prospect of a permanent position after positive evaluation one year after appointment;
  • A tailored made starting package;
  • The terms of employment are in accordance with the Dutch Collective Labour Agreement for Universities (CAO), and include:
  • a starting salary from € 3.821 (scale 11) to € 7.079 (scale 14) gross per month, based on relevant work experience;
  • a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary and a year-end bonus of 8.3%;
  • a minimum of 29 leave days in case of fulltime employment based on a formal workweek of 38 hours. A fulltime employment in practice means 40 hours a week, therefore resulting in 96 extra leave hours on an annual basis;
  • We are also a family-friendly institution that offers parental leave (both paid and unpaid) and career support for partners.
  • professional and personal development programs;
  • a solid pension scheme;
  • [The 30% ruling]( might be applicable as well, which can result in max 30% of the gross salary as a tax-free cost allowance.
The earliest possible starting date is September 1, 2022.


The Department of Mathematics has as objective to develop mathematics in the context of important societal problems. We do fundamental research and also encourage and support interdisciplinary collaborations. In applications we focus on systems that are crucial to every-day life. We contribute to smart grids that make energy networks more efficient, mathematical models that assist medical doctors, schedules that make hospitals more efficient and numerical schemes to study multiscale fluid problems and wave propagation from nano to kilometer scales.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. Because of our diversity values we do particularly support women to apply.
