Assistant/Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics
Are you a highly motivated researcher with an outstanding track record in applied mathematics and its applications in science and engineering?
We are looking for a new colleague at Assistant or Associate Professor level within the Chair Mathematics of Systems Theory at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. We focus on fundamental systems and control theory as well as applications to mechanical engineering, robotics, and medicine. The group is embedded into a lively and very active Department of Applied Mathematics.
The successful candidate will come with a strong track record in applied mathematics and show great enthusiasm for developing novel methods within the broad scope of mathematical systems theory. Preferably, the candidate will strengthen and complement the chair’s existing expertise in the control of partial differential equations, model order reduction, port-Hamiltonian systems and mathematical physics. The candidate will visibly contribute to the multi-disciplinary research ecosystem around our Department of Applied Mathematics (such as the Department of Electrical Engineering, the Department of Computer Science, the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology and the TechMed Centre for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine) by developing cutting-edge applied mathematical theory and methods to solve challenging problems.
In teaching, the successful candidate will be able to combine outstanding mathematical expertise with great didactical skills and contribute to both the bachelor and master programmes in applied mathematics and related engineering studies. Expertise and motivation to supervise multi-disciplinary student projects with one or several of the above partner departments and institutes is seen as a plus. It is further expected that the candidate will acquire the Dutch University Teaching Qualification within the first three years of the appointment.

About the organisation
The faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) uses mathematics, electronics and computer technology to contribute to the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With ICT present in almost every device and product we use nowadays, we embrace our role as contributors to a broad range of societal activities and as pioneers of tomorrow's digital society. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
