We are looking for a highly talented scientist whose focus is on the development, analysis and applications of nanophotonics.
The successful candidate has a strong affinity with state-of-the-art experiments, and with a deep understanding of the observed
phenomena. The capability to develop collaborations with industry and other external partners is crucial. The candidate’s research
fits in the strategy of the Department of Science and Technology and the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology. The candidate builds
a characteristic research line within the COPS chair, and the Applied Nanophotonics (ANP) network of the MESA+ Institute. The COPS
chair is well-known for its pioneering research on light propagation in complex media, including photonic band gaps, wavefront
shaping of light, adaptive quantum photonics, Anderson localization. COPS actively collaborates with leading industry on solid-state
lighting and quantum secure authentication applications. Within ANP, the neighboring chairs have strong programs on non-linear optics,
on-chip lasers, Raman sensors, waveguiding, biomedical optics.
We expect a strong track record of innovative research illustrated by publications in leading international journals, and the
ambition and potential to acquire external funding. The candidate is an independent researcher, committed to excellence, and
with excellent communication skills. A solid background is expected in Physics, Electrical Engineering or related fields,
preferably (but not necessarily) with experience in nanophotonics. The candidate will be involved in the teaching program
of the Applied Physics curriculum at the BSc and MSc levels, and is expected to enthusiastically supervise BSc and MSc
students in their scientific projects. The candidate is required to obtain the Basic Teaching Qualification ("BKO").
Conditions of employment
Your research will be accommodated by the COPS chair. You will be mentored by Professor Willem Vos, in close cooperation with
senior COPS staff Pepijn Pinkse and Ad Lagendijk. The COPS chair and the ANP network will strongly stimulate you to set up a
vigorous independent research program. All research facilities of the COPS chair, of the ANP network, as well as the state-of-the-art
MESA+ cleanroom are at your disposition.
The Tenure Track position is set for a maximum period of six years, and is in the end aimed to lead to a permanent staff position as
associate professor or adjunct professor. While the starting position is intended at assistant professor level, candidates with higher
qualifications are also invited to apply. It is the intention of the UT to provide an attractive start-up package, including a position
for a PhD student to be supervised by the candidate.
During your tenure track term your performance will be regularly evaluated. The goal of these meetings is to keep track of your progress,
to help optimize the development of your scientific and education goals. Criteria for progress include a strong track record of publications,
evaluation of teaching activities, and the record to acquire research funding and to achieve an international network and reputation.
Shortly after your start you will set up a plan, together with your mentors, that is aimed at the successful completion of your tenure track.

enthusiastic colleagues; an organization focusing on internationalization and a high degree of responsibility and independence.
Applications including curriculum vitae, list of publications, a research statement, and three names of potential references can be
submitted online (www.utwente.nl/vacatures/en/), to the attention of the Dean of the Department of Science and Technology (S&T).
Employer The University of Twente. We stand for life sciences and technology. High tech and human touch. Education and research
that matter. New technology which drives change, innovation and progress in society. The University of Twente is the only campus university
in the Netherlands; divided over six faculties we provide more than fifty educational programmes. The University of Twente has a strong
focus on personal development and talented researchers are given scope for carrying out pioneering research.
Within the TNW Faculty (Faculty of Science & Technology) of the University of Twente some 700 staff members and 2000
students are involved in training and research on the interface of chemical technology, applied physics and biomedical technology. Fields
of application include sustainable energy, process technology and materials science, nanotechnology and technical medicine. Research,
which enjoys a high profile both at home and internationally, has been accommodated in the multidisciplinary research institutes MESA+
and MIRA. The faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad and conducts
extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders.
