Postdocs, or early career researchers, play a crucial role at Leiden University. They make a major contribution to our research. In 2019, Leiden University employed around 400 postdocs across our seven faculties in Leiden and The Hague, LUMC not included.
Since postdoc positions are often temporary, you usually only spend a relatively short period of time at a university. Nevertheless, we think it is important that you can achieve your ambitions in that short time, and we do everything we can to make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. We are here to help and support you in various ways.
