Job Announcement Text: 

A tenure track position for gravitational-wave astrophysics is available in the Gravitation and AstroParticle Physics Amsterdam group (GRAPPA), at the interface of the National Institute for Subatomic Physics (Nikhef) and the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy (API) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA).  We are looking for a candidate with an exceptionally strong research program and a strong interest in excellent teaching in the areas of interest of GRAPPA, with a strong preference for candidates working in gravitational-wave astrophysics. For a balanced composition of GRAPPA, we also have a strong preference for female candidates.

Based on performance indicators agreed on at the start of the appointment, the tenure track position will lead to a tenured position in a period of maximally 5 years. In the fifth year of the appointment the tenure decision will be taken. These conditions can be tailored appropriately for candidates that have somewhat greater seniority. Exceptional candidates may be directly considered for a tenured position.
