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 NIOZ I’m part of a marine microbiology department which is pretty cool. There aren’t that many of those out there. It’s nice to have so many like-minded colleagues.
