Faculty of Science, University of Amsterdam
Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics
Science Park 107

The UvA’s Faculty of Science is launching a major recruitment campaign called ‘Connecting Science’ in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Our ambition is to attract top talent from all over the world to a large number of newly created faculty positions in a wide range of exciting scientific directions. We offer a stimulating environment and excellent conditions for research, tightly connected to challenging educational programmes.

We are looking for ambitious and motivated scientists to connect different scientific disciplines. Our goal is to have a maximal impact on science and society.

Research area

Discrete mathematics and combinatorial optimization are key areas in mathematics with ample applications in a broad array of decision making problems appearing in e.g. operations research and machine learning. It adjoins (and partially overlaps with) areas such as algorithmics, computational complexity theory, and graph theory. At the same time, there are (partially recently developed) connections with e.g. probability theory, representation theory and complex dynamic systems.

The Korteweg-de Vries Institute strives for a better gender balance in its staff. We therefore strongly encourage women to apply for this position.
