NIOZ RESEARCH
At the Royal NIOZ facilities on Texel and in Yerseke about 300 people from 27 nationalities work on fundamental and applied marine research projects.

The Royal NIOZ consists of four science departments each focusing on a specific research field within oceanography. On Texel you will find the departments Ocean Systems (OCS), Coastal Systems (COS) and Marine Microbiology and Biogeochemistry (MMB). In Yerseke our research department for Estuarine and Delta systems (EDS) is situated.
EXPERIENCE THE ROYAL NIOZ

It’s of no doubt that Texel and Yerseke are tourist hotspots. Both locations are known for their hospitality, their aquaculture (fish, shrimps, mussels and oysters) and adjoin a majestic National Nature Reserve (Wadden Sea and Easter Scheldt). Texel alone attracts about 925.000 tourists per year and is a favoured wellness centre to thousands of migrating birds.

If you want to be able to explore icons of Dutch culture, the VOC, Rembrandt and Rubens, a choice for the Royal NIOZ is a choice for the better. Texel and Yerseke are close to cities like Amsterdam and Antwerp (Belgium). Some of the enjoyable extras that make the Royal NIOZ a great place to work –especially to foreign nationals.

Working at the Royal NIOZ will probably mean you live and work on the isle of Texel or in Yerseke. Two very inspiring and typically Dutch places to live and work we gladly present to you.

At the Royal NIOZ we like to invest in your personal and professional growth. It is a standard secondary emolument.

We aim to create progress from the day you start. To achieve this we reimburse trainings/courses, monitor your achievements and assist further growth in a career development program.

Masters and Postdocs

The Royal NIOZ aims to improve the career development of masters and postdocs.

With our role in the Marine Masters National Science Program we support multidisciplinary programs that integrate marine physics, marine (bio)chemistry, marine (micro)biology and marine geology.

We also support the goals of the Postdoc Career Development Initiative (PCDI) in the Netherlands. The aim of this organization is to stimulate the broad professional and career development of early career researchers who (are about to) have a PhD.
