    Depending on the position, several interviews may follow with one or more selection committees. For the academic positions of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, we will appoint a Recruitment Advisory Committee. You will be requested to give a presentation to the Committee.

  • Assessment

    To make sure that you are the right person for the job, we may use an external party to conduct an additional assessment. If we want you to participate, you will receive more information about this.

  • Reference check

    Potentially, we carry out reference checks to get a clear picture of your prior professional performance. You choose which references to supply. No one will be contacted without your consent.

  • Feedback

    After the interview(s), we will keep you informed of the outcome. Did you have an interview but were not selected for the position? If so, you will be informed personally, with a clear explanation of why you were not selected. For Associate and Full Professors, the Executive Board will make the final decision about the appointment.
