UCR is one of the English taught International Honors Colleges of Utrecht University, with Departments in Arts and Humanities, Science, and Social Science. The staff and students form a vibrant academic community centered on a Liberal Arts and Sciences bachelor’s education. The leading idea behind the liberal arts and sciences is that students’ undergraduate education covers both broad and deep learning in a wealth of academic disciplines and skills. Students hail from all over the globe and follow an intensive study program in Middelburg, where they live on a centrally located city campus.



Given the ever-greater influence of technology in our daily lives and in knowledge production, UCR has launched a Department of Engineering in September 2020. UCR is located at the heart of the Scheldt Delta, so issues like sea-level rise, climate change, reductions in biodiversity, the generation of sustainable energy, desalination, pollution, and waste management are key. Engineering courses focus on high-tech solutions and connect insights from engineering with the sciences, social sciences, and arts & humanities.


Job description

UCR is looking for an Education and Research Support Officer with a strong profile in the field of electronics, computer science/engineering and/or robotics support. The officer will assist in courses and group projects related to electrical, robotics and mechatronic product design (including organizing workshops on specific topics) and will assist in guiding individual student projects in these fields. Furthermore, the staff member will coordinate the design and realization of the project facilities and will be responsible for the maintenance and organization of those facilities.



The ideal candidate has:

- knowledge of basic electronics,

- preferably experience in teaching and guiding students,

- preferably some programming (e.g. Python) and Arduino/microcomputer experience,

- a service-focused, proactive ,and flexible attitude, and

- good command of the English language.
