MacGillavry Fellowship

University of Amsterdam

The Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam attaches great importance to the contribution of female scientists in research and education. For this reason we are continuing the recruitment programme for talented women, named after the ground breaking crystallographer professor Carolina MacGillavry (1904-1993), an alumna of the University of Amsterdam.

In the third round of this programme we offer: 6 MacGillavry Fellowships (tenure track position for talented female researchers)

The MacGillavry Fellowship is primarily directed at talented women. We are therefore especially seeking women who have a strong track record in one of the Faculty’s scientific disciplines and at the same time have the potential and ambition to obtain a leadership position as professor at the University of Amsterdam. 

Deadline: February 4, 2019
