Work environment

The Faculty of Science (FNWI) at Radboud University is responsible for research and teaching in mathematics, physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, and computer science. FNWI encompasses six research institutes, one of them being the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). IMAPP’s main research areas are mathematics, astrophysics and high-energy physics, focusing on disciplinary as well as interdisciplinary approaches, and having close links to other research areas and institutes at the faculty and university. Mathematics at IMAPP is divided into three sections: Algebra and Topology, Mathematical Physics, and Applied Stochastics. These sections are active in the national mathematical research clusters DIAMANT, GQT and STAR, funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). Research in these three sections is characterised by coherence and synergy, while there are also interconnections with other research groups within IMAPP, FNWI and beyond. The Teaching Institute for Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy (WiNSt) is responsible for the teaching programmes in mathematics, physics and astronomy.

The mathematics branch within IMAPP currently has a vacancy for a tenure-track assistant professor who will be assigned to one of the sections within Mathematics according to his or her profile.
