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 Bionanoscience, part of the Faculty of Applied Sciences at Delft University of Technology and part of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft ( is dedicated to world-leading research at the interface between nanophysics and biology. This young, international department was established in 2010 and has since expanded to currently 13 faculty members with active areas of research ranging from single-molecule biophysics to cell biology. The department offers excellent general facilities, including a central microscopy facility, extensive general biology facilities and a large cleanroom facility, Kavli Nanolab Delft.

Job description

We invite applications for both junior and senior faculty positions. Having established major strengths in single-molecule biophysics, nanotechnology and synthetic biology, the Department is particularly eager to further expand in the area of (quantitative) cell biology. We are furthermore interested in candidates with a strong track record in super-resolution microscopy (nanoscopy). However, exceptional candidates in the entire range from nanophysics to synthetic and cell biology are welcome to apply, and will be given serious consideration. Attractive start-up packages are offered at all levels of seniority.


We seek group leaders with an outstanding scientific track record, researchers with a pioneering, collaborative mentality who appreciate scientific and engineering challenges in quantitative life sciences 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 the undergraduate (Dutch or English) and graduate level (English). For the overall balance in the Department, we especially welcome applications from female scientists and senior scientists. Applicants should hold a PhD. Dutch language skills are not required.

Please apply before June 1st, 2015. For more information about our department please visit
