Warm, open-minded, educational and connected.

This is what together we strive for at VUB.

You will arrive in a workplace surrounded by good colleagues. A place where people interact in an atmosphere of equality and openness. Where you get the freedom to do your job. Where you are challenged to find solutions, be flexible and think outside the box. A place where you can also add value. For your team, the students and your colleagues, but also for wider society and the world.


In 2011, VUB was awarded the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers quality label (HRS4R). 

With this ‘HR Excellence in Research award’ the European Commission gives public recognition to research institutions that have made progress in aligning their human resource policies with the principles set out in the ‘Charter & Code’, based on a customised action plan and HR strategy for researchers. At the present moment, VUB is developing a new action plan. Read in advance how VUB has developed the principles of Open, Transparent and Merit-based recruitment in the document below.
