Tenure track (Women in Science) AMOLF Amsterdam

With this email I wish to attract your attention to an opening for tenure track positions at AMOLF in Amsterdam. These positions are funded through the Women In Science Excel (WISE) programme, funded by the Dutch national funding agency NWO, and the deadline is 30 August 2017. For further information see below and:

If you know of suitable candidates, I would be most indebted if you would forward this email, and/or contact me

Many thanks, Martin van Hecke

About AMOLF: AMOLF is a world-leading interdisciplinary research institute working on the Physics of Functional Complex Matter. AMOLF is located at the Science Park in Amsterdam, in close proximity of the University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
The research program of AMOLF is focused on the physics of functional complex matter, and brings together physics, chemistry, biology, materials sciences and engineering. Central to the mission of AMOLF is the start of promising research directions that are new to the Netherlands.

Present research themes at AMOLF are:
1)      Designer Matter (metamaterials, soft robotics, self organization, soft matter).
2)      Physics of Living Matter (biophysics, systems biology)
3)      Nanophotonics (classical and quantum optics on the nanoscale)
4)      Nanophotovoltaics (PV materials and light management)

We offer a scientifically inspiring collaborative environment, state-of-the-art infrastructure and an interdisciplinary research program. Our tenure track system is modeled on the US system, with similar independence, career perspectives and with a generous start up package (investment and personnel).
Finally, the Dutch funding system is particularly attractive for junior staff building up a new group, as there are a variety of substantial personal grants available for junior people.

About the WISE program:  As the tenure track fellowship is facilitated by the NWO WISE program, applications for the position need to be made through the NWO  “Women in Science Excel” program website. This process works via an open, competitive call for applications administered by the dutch science foundation NWO, with selected candidates invited to visit the institute for interview: https://www.nwo.nl/en/research-and-results/programmes/women+in+science+excel
AMOLF will supply a startup package well beyond the WISE guidelines.
Successful candidates will be able to start a group as independent principal investigator, with a clear path to a permanent position after 5 years.

Candidates who are interested to explore the opportunity of this WISE call, are invited to contact the AMOLF director
(h.bakker@amolf.nl) or any of the pertinent research theme leaders (designer matter –m.v.hecke@amolf.nl , biophysics– G.Koenderink@amolf.nl  , photovoltaics– a.polman@amolf.nl , nanophotonics f.koenderink@amolf.nl) before applying, todiscuss the research plan, the tenure-track start up package we can provide (in addition to the provisions of the WISE call itself), and to explain further the type of research environment at AMOLF.
