The University of Groningen is a research university with a global outlook, deeply rooted in Groningen, City of Talent. Quality has been our top priority for over four hundred years, and with success: the University is currently in or around the top 100 on several influential ranking lists. The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) is the largest faculty within the University. We offer first-rate education and research in a wide range of science and engineering disciplines, from classical disciplines such as mathematics, astronomy and mechanical engineering, to interdisciplinary fields such as artificial intelligence, pharmacy and nanoscience. Our community has an open and informal character with students and staff from around the world.
At the University of Groningen, we believe diversity is key to success. To promote the advancement of talented female researchers at the highest level of the institution we have initiated the prestigious Rosalind Franklin program. The program is aimed at women in industry, academia or research institutes who aspire to become a Full Professor in a European top research university. Since 2002 we have welcomed over 100 Rosalind Franklin Fellows, many of whom by now have reached the rank of Full Professor.
Under European jurisdiction it is lawful to specifically recruit underrepresented groups.
We have in total 27 Rosalind Franklin Fellowships to offer at the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Six positions are open for candidates from all research fields represented at the faculty. In addition, we have 21 positions for candidates from specific research fields in the disciplines Mechanical Engineering & Applied Physics, Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.
