Terms of employment

Terms of employment

Each appointed fellow will be employed by one of the three universities or two university medical centres. They will be offered a full-time, fixed term employment contract for a period of 24 months. Applicants may request other durations within the range of 18 to 30 months.

Employment conditions and remuneration will be according to the collective labour agreement (CAO) of the Dutch universities (CAO Nederlandse Universiteiten) or the Academic Medical Centres (CAO Universitair Medische Centra). The annual gross salary will vary between 42.000 - 55.000 euro's per year, depending on work experience.

Gender balance

The LEaDing Fellows Programme aims to balance gender to at least 40% women / 60% men. Career breaks for maternity or paternity leave will be taken into account in the selection. The collective labour agreement for the Dutch Universities explicitly mentions safeguarding equal opportunities, without any prejudice based on gender, religion, nationality or any other extra disciplinary notion.
