Rosalind Franklin Fellowships at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is home to a kaleidoscopic range of disciplines and research strengths. Our teaching and research programmes range from nanomaterials to engineering, from pharmacy to ecology, and from computer science to astronomy. Our researchers investigate fundamental key questions while collaborating with partners from industry, the medical world and other social sectors. Frontline research groups explore new fields such as synthetic biology and sustainable energy use.
The Faculty place a high priority on the international dimension of teaching and research and has a long history of stimulating, initiating and carrying out multidisciplinary and internationally oriented research. The Faculty has 40 Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes, 35 of which are English-taught, attracting students from all over the world.
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 13 tenure track positions available in this programme, currently co-funded by the European Union. We invite ambitious female academics to apply for these positions.
