Are you passionate about logistics and can you connect education and fieldwork?

What will you undertake?

You will work in the logistical heart of North Limburg. The students who you will prepare for the future will be able to start working in the region, which is chock-a-block full of logistics companies. Your job is in the middle of a partnership triangle of fieldwork, education and students. The campus itself is very dynamic and international. You will encounter students from all over the world and you will hear English and German just as often as Dutch.

We expect a lot from you, but you will also get a lot in return: a great deal of responsibility and a wide package of tasks. Together with colleagues, you will work on developing education. And of course you will be teaching. At the same time, you will also mentor students in various projects, such as trainee and final projects. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to make an important contribution to shaping the next generation, to transfer your knowledge and experience and to coach students in the important phase of their lives?

In addition to teaching, you will also do research work for Knowledge Distribution Center Logistics. And you will be a sparring partner for companies with regard to logistical improvements and innovations. That way, in addition to teaching, you will also be closely involved in practical matters.


In the MT500 of September 2018, Fontys emerges as the most attractive employer among Colleges and Universities in the Netherlands!

Do you personally find growth and development just as important as we do? Then we will be happy to meet you! We challenge you to develop your talents further and to contribute to our ambitions. We will naturally support you in this. For example, we offer a wide range of career and development possibilities and we have an extensive programme for a healthy and active lifestyle (Fontys Vitaal or the Fontys Vitality Programme). Furthermore, we have an end-off-the-year bonus, a number of collective insurance schemes, flexible working hours and a leave scheme.
