Rosalind Franklin Fellowships

At the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences (tenure track positions for talented researchers)

To promote the advancement of talented international researchers at the highest levels of the institution, the University of Groningen has initiated the prestigious Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme. The ambitious programme has been running since 2007 and financed thus far over sixty fellowships.

The Rosalind Franklin Fellowship programme is primarily directed at women in industry, academia or research institutes who have a PhD and aim for a career towards full professorship in a European top research university. The fellowship offers career opportunities to work in international leading milieus and is only awarded to outstanding researchers.

At the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences, new Rosalind Franklin Fellowships are available. Research and education in the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences is carried out in the fields of Behaviour of Individuals, Dynamics of Groups/Systems, Education/Development & Training of Individual Behaviour (see Faculty website, ).

Successful candidates will be expected to establish an independent, externally funded research programme in collaboration with colleagues at our university and elsewhere. They will also be expected to participate in and contribute to the development of the teaching programme of their discipline.

We invite ambitious academics who aim for a career towards full professorship to apply for these positions.

Please note the information at: Requirements and Application

Candidates employed by a Faculty of the University of Groningen are eligible for a Rosalind Franklin fellowship within that Faculty only if appointed in temporary, non-tenure track positions and if they have had at least two years of employment outside that Faculty.
