Find out more about working at the Netherlands Cancer Institute

Throughout the year we have vacancies for group leaders, postdoctoral fellows, Ph.D. students and technicians. Also, for masters students and student technicians we offer rotation projects. Below we have listed the current vacancies. If you are interested in a position at our institute, please contact one of our group leaders.

We offer a stimulating and interactive research environment, state of the art facilities, a competitive salary (including possibilities for additional tax-reduction for non-Dutch employees) and housing facilities in the vicinity of the Institute. Researchers at the Netherlands Cancer Institute have no teaching obligations.

On the  Education page you can see which vacancies are currently available for Ph.D. students and postdocs.


The NKI has a sizeable postdoc community of approximately one hundred and fifty scientists. The atmosphere is very international, with fifty percent of postdocs originating from around thirty different countries, in addition to the Dutch contingent. To support this diverse community, an active postdoc committee, postdocs@NKI, was started in 2011.
