The Radboud Excellence Initiative is a joint enterprise of Radboud University and Radboudumc. Researchers who are established in their discipline may be nominated for a Professorship. Prospective members of the Radboud Excellence Initiative must be nominated by an employee of Radboudumc who has either won a prestigious grant or is a member of an esteemed international organization. Nomination and selection of new candidates take place twice a year. Once nominated and selected, Professors may come to Radboudumc to undertake research for a maximum of six months.
Members of the Radboud Excellence Initiative:
- receive attractive remuneration or prizes
- are taken care of from the date they are officially selected
- receive guidance on all practicalities of moving to and living in the Netherlands from the Excellence Hospitality Team while an interesting and fun social program ensures that they receive the most from this once in a lifetime experience
By the end of their stay in the Netherlands, Professors will find themselves part of a tight-knit exclusive community which fosters interdisciplinary academic curiosity.
