Science jobs in Holland
On this page we will explain the job possibilities for job seekers interested in science jobs in Holland.
Holland has a relatively well developed high tech industry, whilst there are also opportunities related to (bio)medical sciences and research. High tech is mostly concentrated around Eindhoven (home to Philips company, ASML, NXP and many more) and other cities with technical universities.
Most companies will ask for people with a Msc/Mphil degree or upwards (Phd level), and some years of experience related to their areas of expertise. The Master degree is comparable with (Technical) University. EU/EER-citizens have a slightly better chance because there will be no need to arrange a work permit and because of cultural compatibility. However highly educated and experienced candidates with a scientific background from around the globe are welcome. Furthermore, a lot of science positions on offer will require working on a project basis within a company.
So with what kind of profile do you have a good chance of finding employment in Holland?
- You are educated on Msc or Phd level in one or more of the following disciplines:
(Applied) physics, mathematics/computing, aeronautics, mechatronics, electronics, chemistry, biomedicine and related fields.
- You have several years of experience relevant for companies in sectors as mentioned above. Some examples: scientific research, R&D engineering, (medical) imaging, sensor technology, (AS)IC design/FPGA, Fluid/Thermodynamics, optics/photonics et cetera.
- You are willing and able to relocate to The Netherlands, accept fulltime employment and in some cases (international) travel.
- Candidates from within the EU are strongly preferred. Many companies do not wish to arrange the necessary work permit for non-EU citizens. Citizens form the US or Australasia also have a good chance. For experienced PhD level applicants the need for a work permit will be much less of an issue.
