Position Type
Full Time
Organization Type

A tenure-track position for computational fluid and plasma dynamics is available at the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy (API). We are looking for a candidate able to maintain a strong research program in this area, connected to one or more of the main research themes at API (compact object accretion/ejection, star and planet formation). The position is planned on a tenure-track starting at Assistant professor level, but for exceptionally qualified candidates, other arrangements can be negotiated.

The API is seeking to strengthen its research profile with an appointment in computational fluid and plasma dynamics geared toward astrophysical applications. The ability and willingness to connect to active research areas at the API will be a plus. Successful candidates are expected to make use of the ample opportunities to acquire external funding in order to build a research group. Contributing to the teaching program on Bachelor and/or Master level is part of the position, as well as participating in the administration and management of the institute, with the help of our excellent admin staff.
