Career Jobs and internships

The Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) is a leading multidisciplinary research school within the domain of molecular mechanisms of disease and particularly in the fields of molecular medicine, cell biology and translational research. The RIMLS accommodates research groups from the Radboudumc and the Faculty of Science at Radboud University.

The RIMLS offers ample positions for talented and ambitious new colleagues. There are frequent job openings for talented researchers, technical personnel and students alike. These positions are advertised on this website.

Hypatia Tenure Track Grant

A significant impact on healthcare is at the core of the Radboudumc. It is, of course, far from the only institution seeking to achieve this. What sets Radboudumc apart is its level of commitment to selecting the best people and supporting them in order to achieve its vision. To demonstrate this, the medical center awards the prestigious one million Euros Hypatia Tenure Track Grant, to attract the most talented scientists.

Internships

RIMLS welcomes students to perform internships within our institute. Many departments are very open and willing to accommodate ambitious students. Internships are not centrally organized in our institute. We recommend that you browse the Radboudumc/Research website for interesting topics and directly contact (a limited number of) principal investigators with your resume, motivation, duration of internship and desired start date.
