Vacancy Type Autonomous academic staff

Ghent University (Belgium) announces vacancies for full-time professorial posts ("ZAP" level), starting 1 February 2018 at the earliest. The positions are open to candidates who do not yet hold a full-time professorial post (ZAP post) at Ghent University and will be taken up in the rank of assistant professor, associate professor or (senior) full professor.

These posts may be filled in any field of study.

ASSIGNMENT

These positions are funded by the Special Research Fund and are granted in renewable periods of 5 years until retirement. The new academic staff members will be granted the privilege of focusing primarily on research. The teaching load will be limited to no more than 8 ECTS credits per semester on average over a period of 3 years.

PROFILE

Experience

  • You have already conducted excellent academic research in the given discipline, which is clearly reflected in outstanding publications in national and international peer-reviewed books and/or journals;
  • Experience in supervising research and/or coaching Ph.D. students;
  • You are didactically skilled to teach university students to develop academic competences;

Recommended are:

  • International mobility, among other things thanks to research stays at institutions external to the  one where you acquired your highest academic degree;

    • Positively evaluated experience in provided or organised academic lecturing;
    • Professionalisation of education.

Admission requirements

  • Candidates must have been selected for funding of an ERC Synergy Grant by the European Research Council as a result of the call ERC-2018-SyG (launched on the ERC website on 3 August 2017)  with Ghent University acting as a host institution;

  • You hold a PhD degree with doctoral thesis or a degree recognized as equivalent;
  • You have at least two years of postdoctoral experience on the starting date of the ZAP post  

APPOINTMENT INFORMATION

Depending on the specific profile of the selected candidate, the degree of assistant professor (tenure track), associate professor, full professor or senior full professor is awarded. This will be decided by the University Board as proposed by the Faculty Board. 

In the case of assistant professor TT

  • We offer you a temporary appointment as an assistant professor in a tenure track system for a term of five years with a focus on research. If positively evaluated by the University Board, the term of office will be transferred into a permanent appointment as an associate professor. At that moment the time devoted to research, education and academic services may be altered.
  • Should you already be a member of the professorial staff or hold an equal post at another university or research institution, you can immediately be appointed as an assistant professor, without prejudice to the possibility of a temporary appointment offered in article V.28 of the Codex of Higher Education.

In the case of associate professor, full professor or senior full professor
