Our offer

The type of contract is negotiable and depends on experience and your scientific profile. A tenure track is an option, as is a faculty position after positive evaluations. The committee will make an offer pending your preferences and your experience and track record.

We offer a temporary employment contract for 38 hours per week, preferably starting on 1 October 2020 for the duration of five years. You will be offered a permanent contract after positive assessment and evaluation.

The full-time gross monthly salary of the assistant professor position (UD 2/UD 1) will range from €3,637 to €5,656 (salary scale 11-12), depending on qualifications and on the number of years of professional experience, based on a full-time contract (38 hours a week). These amounts are exclusive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.
