KU Leuven is dedicated to education and research in nearly all fields. Its fifteen faculties offer education, while research activities are organized by the departments and research groups. These faculties and departments, in turn, are clustered into three groups: Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Engineering and Technology (SET), and Biomedical Sciences. Each of these groups has a doctoral school for its doctoral training programmes.


We believe that the inclusion and collaboration of people with diverse backgrounds, nationalities and cultures enriches the workplace and inspires new perspectives, insights and ideas. Hence, KU Leuven seeks to create an environment where all talents are nurtured, irrespective of gender, age, cultural background, nationality or any disability.

As we prioritise the wellbeing of our employees, we want to help you achieve a balance between work and other aspects of your life. We also seek to build a positive and sustainable relationship between each employee and the organisation, with particular attention to psychosocial wellbeing.

We seek to recruit, engage, challenge, foster and inspire talented and
driven individuals. Both national and international candidates, and
