A university where people from different disciplines and backgrounds work together to innovate and generate new knowledge. VU Amsterdam understands the importance of respecting the communities that surround us. Colleagues and students who choose to join us are choosing for respectful cooperation, support and openness to one another's ideas. Not only as colleagues but also as individuals who take a genuine interest in one another. Here you can find all information for immigration, accomodation, relocation support and family and practical matters for moving to Amsterdam.
Don't meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that candidates from underrepresented groups are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At the VU we are dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive workplace, so if you're excited about one or more positions and have a related background and relevant experience, but don’t meet all the requirements in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways.
Diversity is a core value of the VU. We stand for an inclusive community and believe that diversity and internationalization contribute to the quality of education and research. Therefore, we are constantly looking for people who can contribute to the diversity of our campus through their background and experience.
