Academic staff recruitment


UCLouvain HR policy

UCLouvain has a broadly open academic recruitment policy, in Belgium and internationally. For several years now, the majority of applications have been submitted by holders of a PhD from a university outside Belgium.

The policy aims to achieve a better gender balance in academic careers. This trend has been underway for several years and is continuing. With this in mind, women are especially encouraged to apply.

Annual academic staff recruitment campaign

Every year UCLouvain conducts an academic staff recruitment campaign in which the university authorities, committees and applicants are involved at specific times, per the recruitment timetable below.

The timetable is organised in such a way as to promote the quality of the applications submitted to UCLouvain and to enable applicants to be informed of decisions as soon as possible.
