At Erasmus University Rotterdam, we are always looking for driven individuals that want to have genuine impact and achieve change. Ambitious academics and professionals who find it important to put their knowledge, skills, and experiences to use for a better and more inclusive society. That is what being an Erasmian means to us. We see it as our responsibility to create an environment where you are able to achieve your goals – where you can be yourself, thrive and grow. At Erasmus University Rotterdam, we offer you the following:
Creating Positive Societal Impact
A job at EUR is a job with impact. We carry out our mission, creating positive societal impact, in the broadest sense of the word. Naturally, it lies at the core of our research and education. But we look beyond those dimensions, with initiatives like the Erasmus Food Lab, Erasmus Love Lab, green choices in our campus construction and Impact at the Core. Internationally, EUR focuses on connections and cooperation, through initiatives such as UNIC. Over the next few years, we will strive to, both internally and externally, place even more emphasis on creating positive societal impact.
Room for creativity and entrepreneurship
Achieving positive societal impact will require thinking outside the box and providing innovative solutions. Creativity and entrepreneurship are essential qualities in this process. At EUR, we stimulate you to develop your own, unique perspective and achieve novel insights. We encourage you to explore new avenues and critically assess existing ones. Good ideas will always be welcomed at EUR, and wherever possible we will help you make them a reality. We invite you to share your ideas with us and look forward to working on them together.
Personal and professional development
As a university, we understand the need for continuous development like no other. We set ambitious goals and hope you will do the same. As an employer, we try to support you in achieving these goals as best as possible: with a stimulating environment with experts in your field to learn from and with, with a personal training budget and through our internal training platform. We are convinced that investing in the development and wellbeing of our employees is essential.
International and inclusive work setting
Erasmus University Rotterdam wants to take the lead in diversity and inclusivity. Through various initiatives, research, policy and communication we strive to have all of our employees feel at home at EUR, in an environment where they can be themselves regardless of their gender identity or expression, their sexual nature, religion, ethnicity, neurotypicality, nationality, disability or any other aspects – visible or invisible – that make them unique. We want to provide true inclusivity and consider the diversity among our students and employees as one of our greatest strengths. Read more about our services for international employees here.
Achieving balance together
Our lives no longer solely revolve around work, and it is increasingly important that jobs offer room for development and a good balance between work and private life. As an employer we share this ideal and provide various services to encourage creating and maintaining the right balance. We offer, among other things, generous secondary benefits with up to eight weeks of paid leave a year, fully paid additional birth leave, and work-life balance coaches. For many of our positions you have the option to schedule your hours flexibly, and we stimulate a healthy mix of campus and remote work with our Blended Working policy.
