€ 3746 - € 5826 per maand


Real World Evidence is essential for decision making on medicines by health care professionals, regulatory and reimbursement agencies. Evaluation of interventions in small populations and individual patients demands innovations in: 1: (pragmatic) trial design and analysis as well as observational research methods, and 2: methodology to integrate and analyse data from increasingly large and rich datasets (Big Data) originating from electronic health records, patient reported outcomes, social media, wearables and biobanks. New research methods need to be developed into discovery of new adverse drug effects, effectiveness (prediction in patient subgroups), and (re)discovery of new drug targets.

The position involves 70% research time and 30% teaching activities so it can offer you a diverse and interesting mix of responsibilities, such as:

  • conducting research into development and evaluation of methods to generate evidence on effectiveness and safety of medicines in daily clinical practice (real world evidence);
  • contributing to the acquisition of substantial external research funding for the benefit of the research programme;
  • strongly contributing to (maintaining) cooperation with (inter)national partners in the field of pharmacoepidemiology and drug regulatory science;
  • coordinating and teaching in Real World Evidence related courses (pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacotherapy, medication policy) in the Bachelor's and Master's programmes Pharmacy, Drug Innovation and the Pharmacoepidemiology Summer Programme;
  • supervising research (PhD and MSc) within the scope of the research programme.


We are looking for someone to complement our team, both on a academic and personal level, and who has:

  • a PhD degree in (bio)medical, (bio)statistical or pharmaceutical science or other relevant research field;
  • a strong research track record in methodological development/evaluation in observational drug research and/or pragmatic trials;
  • scientific creativity and productivity, as evident in recent publications in (international) peer-reviewed journals;
  • the ability to acquire research funding;
  • experience in and passion for teaching and/or co-coordinating academic courses;
  • experience in supervising MSc students;
  • a Basic Teaching Qualification (BKO) or the willingness to acquire this qualification in the near future;
  • an excellent command of the English language and is (if applicable) willing to learn Dutch in the near future;
  • an effective and efficient work ethic;
  • the ability and drive to work within international/multidisciplinary teams and to also think conceptually;
  • good communication skills.


  • the opportunity to work in a team of ambitious and collaborative scientists;
  • a full-time tenure track position for five years, which will be subject to a mid-term evaluation after approximately 2.5 years and an end-term evaluation. If evaluations are positive after five years, the position becomes permanent;
  • a full-time gross salary ranging from €3,746 to €5,826 (scale 11 according to the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities, at the level of Assistant Professor);
  • benefits including 8% holiday bonus and 8.3% end-of-year bonus;
  • a pension scheme, partially paid parental leave, and flexible employment conditions based on the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities.

In addition to the employment conditions laid down in the cao for Dutch Universities, Utrecht University has a number of its own arrangements. For example, there are agreements on professional development, leave arrangements and sports. We also give you the opportunity to expand your terms of employment yourself via the Employment Conditions Selection Model. This way we like to encourage you to continue to grow.
