With over 5,000 employees, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is an intellectual hub within the Netherlands. Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted within seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry. Housed on four city campuses in or near the heart of Amsterdam, where disciplines come together and interact, the faculties have close links with thousands of researchers and hundreds of institutions at home and abroad.
The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and aren’t satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. To work at the UvA is to work in an independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.
The work for this job stems from a collaboration between the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) at the UvA and Dan Ariely’s Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke University. The collaboration will benefit from partnerships with private sector companies and will be centred on a wide range of topics including but not limited to exercise, mental well-being, nutrition, choice architecture, health and well-being in and around the workplace.
