Research/Project assistant positions at TU Delft

Recommended Posts

Mind that funding is different in the NL.


Most of my classmates during master's did not have any offers or availability to do paid teaching/research jobs - it's very uncommon actually. Some short stints here (like 1 month of data coding or smthing) and there for the lucky few. Usually these jobs are directed through the department rather than individual profs (funding is usually not tied to a specific prof, although sometimes it happens) - my school just hires 2 fulltime TA/RA's and that's it. Especially TA's are always through the department/university rather than supervisor. RA's varies, and is sometimes available if there's a big grant or a project that needs a little bit of hands on work for a short period of time. 

PhD's are not student and are paid as full-time employees (although lower salary than of course staff). 

Best would just be to check their webpages with job offers; https://www.tudelft.nl/en/about-tu-delft/working-at-tu-delft/search-jobs/  As you can see, not much RA/TA positions at all. You may want to contact the department if they have some RA positions potentially coming up. 


Most students have a part-time job on the side - sometimes related to their major sometimes not (note that for starter/part-time jobs here they often require or prefer people who speak Dutch). Most of my RA projects I did as a volunteer. I was fortunate to be hired as a part-time lab manager - but that was only because I established very good ties with the department during undergrad and they wanted a Dutch speaker and most of my cohort was from abroad or didn't want to work 20 hrs per week extra. One other girl did teaching - but since undergrad is in Dutch they wanted a native speaker again.
