Job Announcement Text: 

We seek creative individuals to join Chalmers as tenure-track Assistant Professors and accelerate our quest for new knowledge and sustainability. You are invited to apply and propose your research ideas and to describe your plans to reach your goals and ambitions to make a difference. 

We look for candidates that complement rather than duplicate our existing competences and that have an ambition to interact with our existing research groups. We value scientific depth and inventiveness, a collaborative spirit, societal engagement as well as leadership and entrepreneurial skills. Our aim is to actively improve the gender balance in our faculty. We therefore strongly encourage female applicants.

Chalmers will recruit two assistant professors within Basic Science. Research and education in Basic Science at Chalmers address fundamental questions in astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, earth and climate science, mathematics, microtechnology and physics.

As an Assistant Professor, you will conduct and lead research, and develop into an independent principal investigator, in line with the intentions described in your application. Together with the rest of the faculty, you will contribute to teaching and developing our educational curriculum, to the academic culture, and participate in departmental and university-wide activities. You are expected to supervise undergraduate and graduate students, and to apply for external funding to further accelerate your research. As an employee at Chalmers, you are encouraged to actively contribute to our work within the field of equality and diversity, for example through the GENIE Initiative on gender equality for excellence.

A four-year tenure track position is provided with a generous start-up package, relocation support, mentoring, and leadership training to further your development as an outstanding research leader. You will be employed by the department of your choice, while also finding collaborations and growing networks across departments and in the wider society. The aim is to achieve the level of Associate Professor within four years and if successful you will be offered a permanent faculty position at Chalmers.

The position is available for candidates who have a doctoral degree in a relevant field, not older than 7 years prior to the application deadline.
