this is a limited circulation inquiry for candidates for a tenure track position in the general area of Structural Geology – Tectonics at VU University Amsterdam.
We are looking for a person with a couple of years post-doc experience and the publication record that is associated with that stage of the person’s career. The appointed candidate will be given full support to develop a research program that is high level enough to qualify for junior Netherlands or EU research funding (NWO – VIDI or ERC Staring Grant level).
Full information can be found at: http://www.vu.nl/nl/werken-bij-de-vu/vacatures/2013/129.asp
Tenure track in this context should be interpreted that a permanent contract is possible for the appointed candidate managed to secure such competitive external funding.
The general area is Structural Geology – Tectonics, and given the strong complementary fields of petrology and geochronology in the department, a person capable of bridging these fields (i.e. someone in the field that we all enjoy) would to my mind be a great addition to our department.
Please pass on this information to persons that you feel are qualified.
best regards, Jan
