The newly installed Diversity Committee, researching ‘diversity’ at the University of Amsterdam, is looking for assistants who will support their research project for the period April-August.

As a subcommittee of the Democratization and Decentralization Committee, the Diversity Committee will investigate issues relating to diversity and inclusion at the UvA. The committee focuses on various kinds of diversity (e.g. race/ethnicity, gender, religion, class, sexuality, different abilities).

Among others, the committee explores the composition of students and staff, individual experiences, teaching practices, curricula, regulations and material environments.

Research assistants

The Diversity Committee needs assistants who contribute to the research activities. The committee is looking for dedicated students, preferably (R)MA students, or recently graduated people. The assistants should have an interest in the theme of ‘diversity’ and have various research and/or organizational skills. One of the requirements is that they speak and write fluently both in English and Dutch.

Experience with social science research methods is a pre, but certainly no hard requirement, as we also like students from other disciplines (e.g. Dentistry and Science) to be part of the team.

Research period and salary

Research assistants will start at short notice, for 0.5 - 1.0 fte in the period 6 April till 31 August 2016. The salary will be €1863 gross per month, based on 38 hour/week (scale 6.0).
