“The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Groningen harbours a kaleidoscope of disciplines and research strengths. Our programmes in research and education range from nanomaterials to engineering, from pharmacy to ecology, and from computer science to astronomy. Our researchers pursue fundamental key questions while collaborating with partners from industry, the medical world and other realms of society. Frontline research groups explore new fields such as synthetic biology and sustainable energy use.”
The University of Groningen initiated the prestigious Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme to promote the advancement of talented international researchers at the highest levels of the institution. The ambitious programme has been running at the Groningen Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences since 2002 and at the University as a whole since 2007.
The Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme is aimed at women in industry, academia or research institutes who have a PhD and would like a career as full professor in a European top research university. The Fellowship is only awarded to outstanding researchers. Successful candidates will be expected to establish an independent, largely externally funded research programme in collaboration with colleagues at our Faculty and elsewhere.
They will also be expected to participate in and contribute to the development of the teaching programme of their discipline. The University of Groningen has 30 tenure track positions available in this programme, currently cofunded by the European Union.
We invite ambitious female academics to apply for these positions
Please note: recruitment for the current round starts on 1 October 2014 and ends on 1 December 2014. For questions on the fellowship programme or research at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, please send an email to Dr L.J.A. van Putten.
