We are a corporation between Leiden University, Delft University and Erasmus University Rotterdam (LDE). Since five years, we are running a highly successful LDE Master program ‘Governance of Migration and Diversity’ (GMD) and that is now expanding into a LDE Research Centre.
The LDE Research Centre is looking for two Research Officers (post-doc level). One Research Officer will be based at Leiden University (history department), the other at Delft University. Both Research Officers will work with all partners within the LDE GMD Research Centre.
Leiden University, Delft University and Erasmus University Rotterdam are strongly committed to equality, inclusion and diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from members of groups currently underrepresented. In addition, we believe in the value of an inclusive learning environment and aim to diversify our faculty in order to address the needs of our diverse students in the 21st century. Candidates with intercultural and diversity competences are therefore especially invited to apply as well.
