Delft University of Technology is aiming to substantially increase the number of top female scientists. To help accelerate this, a Fellowship is introduced offering up to ten high profile tenure track positions for talented female scientists in research fields that follow the domains of Delft University of Technology.
(inspired by the Rosalind Franklin Fellowship of RUG)
You are a dynamic, innovative researcher holding a PhD in a relevant discipline and have the ambition to become a full professor. You have a proven drive for scientific excellence, which is demonstrated by publications in first rate international scientific journals, the ability to compete for external research funding and an extensive international network. You have a few years of post-doctoral working experience in research groups in industry or academia, preferably also outside of the Netherlands.
Requirements The fellowship programme is open for (inter)national top scientists currently not employed by the TU Delft (because we want to raise up the % of female scientists). Employees of TU Delft are referred to the regular tenure track procedures and other career tracks of the TU Delft. PhD-students who almost finished their thesis: go abroad for a postdoctoral position and compete for the new round in 2014
36 scientists were approached to become an ambassador, already 28 of them agreed
