1 - Company profile

For already 50 years, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel has stood for freedom, equality and connectedness. These values are strongly present on our campuses, in our students as well as our staff. At the VUB, you’ll find a diverse collection of personalities: pure innovators, but especially people who are 100% their authentic selves. With about 3,500 employees, we are the largest Flemish-speaking employer in Brussels, an international city with which we are all too happy to be affiliated and around which our four campuses are located.

  • Your scientific work should result in several manuscripts published in international peerreviewed journals.
  • You will assist in the supervision of PhD students and master students.
  • You will participate in writing grant proposals.

You’ll receive a salary linked to one of the scales set by the government.
