Functieomschrijving

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at TU Eindhoven is looking for new faculty members to expand its academic staff. We welcome applications in all areas of mathematics and at all levels, ranging from (tenure-track) assistant professor to full professor.

TU Eindhoven. TU Eindhoven (TU/e) is a mid-size technical university located in the heart of the high-tech industry in the Netherlands, named the Brainport region. Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands, and including suburbs it has about 420,000 inhabitants. TU/e is a highly ranked university both in research and education. Our training and research programs are highly regarded and we foster close relationships with companies, organizations and research institutes in the Brainport region and beyond.  Fundamental and applied research are equally valued here. The high rank of the TU/e is due to the impact of its scientific research and also to its scientific co­publications with industry. TU/e is a social and inspiring university with a fine culture. You will quickly feel at home, surrounded by people who share your scientific ambitions. The TU/e currently has nine departments, with over 11,000 students in total.

Growth and development: the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Mathematics is one of the two sub-departments of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS) at TU/e. With over 100 (assistant, associate and full) professors, almost 200 PhD and PDEng students, about 1100 Bachelor students and 600 Master students, M&CS is one of the largest of the nine departments of the TU/e. By performing top-level fundamental and applied research, offering high-quality educational programs, and maintaining strong ties with industry, M&CS aims to contribute to science and to innovation in and beyond the region.

The department’s relationship with the high-tech industry in the Brainport region means that staff and students can contribute directly to the development of technological innovations with real-world relevance. The department has produced a number of successful spin-offs, and participates in many national and international research consortia. The unique positioning in one of Europe’s leading tech regions also means excellent job opportunities for spouses.

Beside a full Mathematics curriculum, we offer also a full Data Science curriculum. Mathematics has a rich research portfolio, ranging from fundamental to application-oriented research in a variety of areas within Mathematics.
