About AcademicTransfer

Since 1997 AcademicTransfer supplies all academic job openings at non-profit research institutes, universities and university medical centers in the Netherlands. In recent years, jobs in the corporate sector have also been added in response to intense demand for talented researchers.

Our goal is to promote PhD positions, research and post-doctoral positions and job openings for assistant, associate and full professors.
Although AcademicTransfer focuses on providing access to jobs in the Netherlands, the website is published in several languages. All job openings that specifically solicit foreign applicants are also offered in English.

AcademicTransfer originated as initiative of three Dutch organisations:

Finding relevant jobs

Start your search by browsing all jobs, entering a search string, or searching for employers in our employer listing, or refine your search results by adding extra criteria such as academic field, salary or occupation.
Once your search results have been tailored to your preferences, you can set up an email alert for new jobs that match those parameters. You will be notified if new job openings are added that match your criteria.

Applying for jobs

You are always free to apply for a job that interests you, even if you are not a registered user. However, once you reach this point, it may be advisable to join us, since AcademicTransfer supports job applications by providing a user profile. Registered users can create a CV in their profile; you can choose to allow potential employers to access your CV, or send it along with a job application. When applying for a job, you can also attach up to five additional documents. In addition, you can use the ‘Match’ button to ask the system to display suitable job openings based on your profile.

Learn more about employers

Next to the job opening information most employers provide additional information. This information can be accessed by clicking the employer logo shown in job openings or via the employers section. The information provided by employers may include application procedures, tenure tracks, PhD programmes, frequently asked application questions and contact details.

Coming to the Netherlands

The English section of the AcademicTransfer provides many links to information that will be specifically interesting to people from other countries who are considering coming to the Netherlands. This section includes information on visas, housing, cultural tips, taxation, social security and insurance. The information in this section is provided in part by, AcademicTransfer’s European partner in the Netherlands.
