The Women In Science Excel (WISE) programme provides talented female scientists with an opportunity to develop or expand their own research group at one of the NWO institutes. NWO believes in providing opportunities for all talented researchers to excel. As such, NWO is committed to improving the gender balance among its research staff. WISE contributes directly by attracting top female researchers and promoting their advancement. Over a period of five years, NWO’s institutes will be offering 20 WISE fellowships.

About the institute

The tenure track positions target young female researchers who have obtained their PhD preferably at least three years ago. Successful candidates will be offered a tenure track position (five years) at the institute of their choice. Following a successful tenure track, fellows will receive a tenured position at the same institute. There are also opportunities for more senior female researchers, who qualify more quickly for tenured positions.

Four WISE tenure tracks are being offered in the second round of the programme. AMOLF is one of the research institutes participating in this round.
