It is essential that applicants have complete fluency in English and Dutch; other language abilities would be an advantage.
The post is for 24 months in the first instance, and will be extended subject to further funding.

If selected for interview, candidates will be asked to give a short presentation on previous research or work experience relevant to the post; part of the interview may be conducted in Dutch. Following the interview, they will also be asked to undertake a short test involving preparation of an English-language summary of Dutch policy documents. Interviews are likely to take place on 27 September 2017.
