We are seeking *four ambitious, enthusiastic, innovative scientists* to strengthen our research capacity and multidisciplinary lines of research.
We provide a vibrant environment organised in 9 research groups, and provide access to state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and the 42 million natural history objects in our collection. At Naturalis you will get the opportunity to develop your research career, to collaborate with inspiring colleagues and to teach at Dutch universities.

As a (senior) researcher, you are challenged to develop your leadership skills and to set up your own line of research. You will be expected to acquire project funding for new research, participate in outreach activities and mentor new researchers. After a successful first year evaluation, the contract will be extended. After a maximum of 4 years, the contract will be converted into permanent employment.

For postdocs this is an opportunity to pioneer your own research line within the context of one or more research groups. Postdocs are expected to spend part of their time on the acquisition of research funding.
