Navigate your career

Start orienting yourself on six different career journeys for researchers in the Netherlands, both in and outside academia. On the interactive career journey map above, you can explore research positions in six sectors. We call it the Career Navigator. It gives you a broad overview of research career possibilities in the Netherlands.

The Career Navigator is partially subsidized by SoFoKleS, the Social Fund for the Knowledge Sector.
