I have a question concerning a job opening

AcademicTransfer cannot answer any questions and/or queries about the content of the job openings posted on our website, since we are merely mediators. Any questions and/or queries concerning the content of a job opening and/or procedures within an organisation must therefore be addressed to the particular job-posting holder.

I have a question about the closing date of a job

The specified number of days within which to apply and the displayed closing date of a job opening are indicative. An employer reserves the right to close the job before the initial specified closing date at any time. It is therefore advisable to apply for a job as soon as possible once it is posted on AcademicTransfer.

I have a question about an organisation or job posting holder

AcademicTransfer is not in the position to render information about the participating organisations and employers. For general information about a particular organisation we would like to advise you to directly contact the organisation in question. Please visit the employer pages on AcademicTransfer to find their contact details.

I have a question concerning my career

AcademicTransfer offers job posting overviews but is not (yet) equipped to render counselling and/or career advice. Therefore, it is not possible to assist people individually in their job search. However you can find links to organisations which you might find helpful in our link section.

I would like to work outside the Netherlands

Currently AcademicTransfer offers no information concerning living and working outside the Netherland. In case you are looking for information on working outside the Netherlands it is advised to contact the embassy in your country of choice. More information on working in Europe can be found on Euraxess.

I would like to work in the Netherlands

Our international visitors have let us know that they would like to find more information about living and working in the Netherlands. Therefore, AcademicTransfer has made a great tool, FactCards, offering all kinds of information concerning living, moving to and working in the Netherlands. You will learn how to prepare your stay in the Netherlands, more information about the scientific landscape or doing a PhD in the Netherlands or for instance rankings of all the Dutch research universities. But there is lots more, so check out FactCards now!

Job postings outside the Netherlands

General focus on AcademicTransfer currently is job postings in the Netherlands. However, AcademicTransfer cooperates with several international job boards and is therefore able to publish a wider range of international vacancies on offer. Preferred partner is Career|edu.
