Westerdijk Fellowship

Utrecht University’s Faculty of Science aims for innovative scientific output. Gender diversity among the scientific staff plays an important role in achieving this goal. The Westerdijk Fellowship has been established to attract outstanding female talent with leadership potential, and offers a tenure-track appointment in combination with a PhD candidate position. This 5 year fellowship is intended for ambitious female Assistant- or Associate Professors who aspire to a full professorship. The fellowship is named after the first Dutch female professor, Johanna Westerdijk, who held the chair of Plant Pathology at Utrecht University.
