Do you want to stay updated on the latest internships and job openings? Join the Career Services Graduate School of Life Sciences group on LinkedIn. Also a great way to build up your professional network.

Internships help you explore the practical value of your university education. Some useful information:

  • You can look for internships through Google, your own network, online internship databases, your lecturers, your student association, organisations such as Integrand (Dutch private sector) and Aiesec (International internships) and on the Career Services internship database
  • When organising your internship, you can use a standard UU agreement (in Dutch or in English).
  • Your career officer will be able to help you with a CV check.
  • According to Dutch law (art. 7:661 lid 1 Burgelijk Wetboek) the student-trainee that causes damage to the host organisation during his/her internship is, in principle, not liable for this. 

The Utrecht University Careers Day offers an opportunity to become acquainted in an informal setting with a large number of prospective private sector internship providers www.uu.nl/careersday

Bear in mind that a lot of jobs are obtained by networking so connect with your supervisors, peers and alumni of you master program. Share an update about the type of job you are looking for and ask your network to inform you when they know if something becomes available. If you want to obtain a PhD position, you can send out an e-mail to the group leader of a research group which you find very interesting. Be specific and personal. Why do you want to work with them and what do you have to offer? If you want to receive help with this, make an appointment with the Career Officer.

Job openings can be found on various websites. Some of them also have an English version:
