Why work at ARCNL?

At ARCNL your science is both curiosity driven and serves a clear societal purpose. For this, you will frequently interact with industrial partner ASML. ARCNL is a young and vibrant organization where people with a shared passion find each other. Opportunities to talk to fellow researchers and senior group leaders are plentiful. Your own research group will be small (about 8 people) facilitating close collaboration. At ARCNL you are surrounded by excellent scientists and dedicated group technicians. The institute is located at the Amsterdam Science Park: home to one of the largest concentrations of exact sciences in Europe.
ARCNL is an inclusive institute where researchers from all over the world work together. The institute wishes to attract more female scientists and technicians. One of the ways to achieve this is our participation in the NWO program Women In Science Excel (WISE).
