Meaningful minds

You are driven to use science and technology to devise solutions to the challenges facing our society today and tomorrow. This means that you are eager to learn, curious and fully committed to research, education, impact creation and collaboration with new partners. As a researcher, you get the space and support you need to excel. Our small-scale and personal approach makes it easy to communicate and collaborate with other research groups and departments.

We embrace diversity and inclusion. We welcome people from all backgrounds and without regard to sex, gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, age, socio-economic status, identity, visible or invisible disability, religion, or sexual orientation.

Irène Curie Fellowship

As of July 2019, TU/e has launched the Irène Curie Fellowship. This program is aimed at talented women who pursue an academic career in our European top research university. A diverse workforce generates better problem-solving strategies and more creative ideas, it accelerates innovation and enables teams to better learning and growth. Moreover, the Irène Curie fellows can serve as role models for the next generation of female scientists.
