Academic Positions with a focus on research
Ghent University announces 6 vacancies for full-time professorial posts ("ZAP" level) taking effect on 1 September 2021. The positions, funded by the Special Research Fund (BOF), 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 (tenure track), associate professor, full professor (hoogleraar) or senior full professor (gewoon hoogleraar). The positions are open in all fields of research.
Taking up this position implies the privilege of focusing almost exclusively on research activities for a period of 5 years, with a teaching load limited to no more than 8 credits per semester, on average over a period of 3 years. This appointment can be renewed to a maximum of 10 years. Afterwards, the amount of time devoted to teaching, research and academic services can be modified by the board of governors of the university, in consultation with the appointed professor.
As a start-up package, each of these staff members will receive a research grant of €210.000 to contribute towards the personnel, operating and/or equipment costs of establishing a research team.
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.

The career and evaluation policy for Professorial Staff is based on talent development and growth, prioritizing vision development and strategy - at the personal as well as the group level.

More information can be found on www.ugent.be/en/work/mobility-career/career-aspects/professorial-staff.
Ghent University is committed to properly welcoming new professorial staff members and offering them appropriate guidance. The basic teacher training and courses of 'Dutch' and 'English' for foreign-speaking lecturers are only a few examples of our wide range of training and education opportunities. Furthermore, each Ghent University staff member can count on a number of benefits such as a bike allowance, reimbursement of public transport commuting costs, daycare, a wide range of sports facilities and EcoCheques. A complete overview of all our employee benefits (in Dutch).
Ghent University also invests in welcoming international professorial staff. It offers various housing options, a relocation bonus, the International School for school-aged children (with a discount on the tuition fee), support when registering at the City of Ghent, support with the procedure of family reunification and other administrative matters in connection with moving to Ghent. More information can be found on www.ugent.be/en/living.
Candidates who are newly appointed at Ghent University with an appointment as autonomous academic staff of at least 50% or candidates whose appointment as autonomous academic staff at Ghent University is increased to a minimum of 50% receive a Starting Grant of €210.000 to contribute towards the personnel, operating and/or equipment costs of establishing a research team.
GENDER AND DIVERSITY
Ghent University conducts an equal opportunities policy and encourages everyone to apply. Applications of persons from underrepresented groups are especially welcomed.
Ghent University strives for a gender balance in which a maximum of 60% of the academic staff with a PhD degree is of the same gender. Therefore a quota will be applied in the preselection in which the percentage of female candidates that is invited for the final selection equals at least the percentage of female candidates that applied for these positions.
As long as this goal is not achieved at the level of the group of scientific disciplines involved, the university board will in principle, for positions within this group, give priority to candidates of the underrepresented gender but only in case of equal qualifications of the applicants.
After the final application date, all received applications will be sent to the Research coordination Office. There the applications will be checked on eligibility. The applications are then assigned to one of the 4 evaluation committees of the research council:
1) Scientific Committee for the Humanities and Social and Behavioural Sciences
2) Scientific Committee for Exact and Applied Sciences
3) Scientific Committee for Biomedical and Medical Sciences
4) Interdisciplinary committee
The selection consists of 3 rounds:
