Two Assistant Professors (Tenure Track) in Imaging Physics

Department/faculty: Faculty Applied Sciences
Level: University Graduate
Working hours: 38.0 hours weekly
Contract: 4 years
Salary: 3476 - 5405 euros monthly (full-time basis)

Faculty Applied Sciences

The Faculty of Applied Sciences is the largest faculty of TU Delft, with around 550 scientists, a support staff of 250 and 1,800 students. The faculty conducts fundamental, application-oriented research and offers scientific education at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. The faculty is active in the fields of Life and Health Science & Technology, Nanoscience, Chemical Engineering, Radiation Science & Technology, and Applied Physics.

The Department of Imaging Physics at TU Delft invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions.

Research in the department is aimed at developing novel instrumentation and methodology to push existing boundaries in imaging science and sensing. Also, we advance the fundamental understanding of waves and particles, their interaction with molecules and materials, and the analysis of the signals generated during interaction. Our work has clear societal impact in the areas of life sciences, healthcare, and industry. We are eager to further expand in areas of fundamental as well as applied imaging that would complement and strengthen our research efforts ( ).

Job description

The department of Imaging Pysics invites applications for two tenure track positions.

Successful candidates are expected to establish an independent research line in an emerging area of imaging physics that adds synergistically to our current research portfolio. In particular we invite applications gearing towards the fields of medical imaging, including ultrasound, microscopy, OCT and MRI, multi-modal combinations thereof (tenure track 1), and employing sophisticated image analysis techniques like deep learning (tenure track 2).

We envision possible connections to the fields of personalized medicine and of proton therapy at the Holland PTC in Delft.


We seek principal investigators with an outstanding scientific track record, researchers with a creative and collaborative mentality who appreciate scientific and engineering challenges in imaging physics and who through their research, management skills, and teaching qualities can inspire co-workers and students alike. Successful candidates are expected to establish a strong, externally funded research program and to be committed to excellence in teaching at undergraduate (Dutch or English) as well as graduate level (English). Candidates are expected to be competitive in attracting personal (amongst others ERC funded) grants. We especially welcome female scientists. Candidates should hold a PhD + several years of additional experience in a postdoctoral or industrial position.
