Challenge. Change. Impact!
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three scientific disciplines. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we all use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make completely sustainable and future-proof. At the same time, we are developing the chips and sensors of the future, whilst also setting the foundations for the software technologies to run on this new generation of equipment – which of course includes AI. Meanwhile we are pushing the limits of applied mathematics, for example mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. In other words: there is plenty of room at the faculty for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1000 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.

You will work in the Education and Students Affairs (ESA) department. The ESA team consists of, among others, academic counsellors, programme coordinators, the international office and the ESA secretariat. The team is characterised by driven, flexible and social colleagues with a heart for education and people. Personal contact with students, lecturers and colleagues is of paramount importance. Your colleagues will therefore welcome you with open arms. Together with your fellow management assistants, you are the first point of contact for staff, students and guests. The workfield is very varied and every day is different. On one working day, for example, you might be making graduate students happy with a diploma, point teachers to legal education rules and guidelines, support in handling an appeal case and inform students about the graduation procedure. On the other day, you schedule a meeting for the programme management, advise a programme coordinator on exam regulations and walk to another building for a meeting with the Board. And in between, have a nice lunch with your colleagues.
The ESA team considers a working environment in which everyone feels welcome and appreciated very important. A working environment in which attention is paid to people and individual qualities regardless of religion, origin, age and gender. Together, we strive for a working environment where we embrace differences. We therefore like to invite candidates who can contribute to this through their background and experience.
