University of Amsterdam – MacGillavry Fellowships 2013


The Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam is organizing the second round for the MacGillavry Fellowships. There are 5 fellowships (tenure track positions) available for top talented female scientists. 
“The Faculty values the contribution of female scientists in its research and education and aims to increase their numbers. The MacGillavry Fellowship, named after the ground-breaking crystallographer Carolina MacGillavry (an UvA alumna), is directed at ambitious women. We are therefore especially seeking women who excel in one of the faculty’s disciplines, who possess leadership potential and aspire to a career as a professor at the University of Amsterdam. 
The fellowship comprises a tenure track, whereby the fellow starts as assistant professor (UD), with the prospect of a permanent appointment as associate professor (UHD) as well as career arrangements leading to professorship. Depending on the fellow’s qualifications, entrance at a higher level is possible. We offer among other things an attractive start-up package, and assistance in finding a job for your partner, child care and accommodation. Fellows can also count on excellent guidance.”
 The scientific disciplines of the Faculty are: Biological science and biomedical science Earth Sciences (Physical Geography) Informatics and Logic Physics Chemistry Astronomy Mathematics and Statistics.
The closing date for applications is 15 February 2013.
