WORLD-CLASS RESEARCH

KU Leuven is dedicated to education and research in nearly all fields. Its fifteen faculties offer education, while research activities are organized by the departments and research groups. These faculties and departments, in turn, are clustered into three groups: Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Engineering and Technology (SET), and Biomedical Sciences. Each of these groups has a doctoral school for its doctoral training programmes.

PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

We believe that the inclusion and collaboration of people with diverse backgrounds, nationalities and cultures enriches the workplace and inspires new perspectives, insights and ideas. Hence, KU Leuven seeks to create an environment where all talents are nurtured, irrespective of gender, age, cultural background, nationality or any disability.

At KU Leuven, our aim is for every employee to feel satisfied at work. That’s why we want to support you in your personal development by encouraging self-direction and empowerment. Moreover, we offer you a broad range of career prospects, flexible and tailored to your interests.

As we prioritise the wellbeing of our employees, we want to help you achieve a balance between work and other aspects of your life. We also seek to build a positive and sustainable relationship between each employee and the organisation, with particular attention to psychosocial wellbeing.

We seek to recruit, engage, challenge, foster and inspire talented and
driven individuals. Both national and international candidates, and
academics as well as other professionals.

STORIES FROM THE INSIDE

Yes, working at KU Leuven is quite unique. Why, you may ask? Because innovative insights come to you every day. Because you continuously face new challenges. Because you discover more about who you are, push your boundaries, fulfil your ambitions.

KU Leuven PhD student Apeksha Shapeti studies angiogenesis, the process by which new blood vessels grow from pre-existing ones. Now pay attention because angiogenesis research has important implications for cancer research and tissue engineering. Tumour cells, like healthy cells, need the oxygen and nutrients found in blood to survive. Understanding how a tumour’s environment causes blood vessels to grow could offer clues for how to modify the microenvironment to stop them growing. In a similar vein (sorry), angiogenesis research is vital to improving tissue engineering techniques. One of the major challenges in the field right now is that a synthetic scaffold needs to connect to the body’s circulatory system in order to be functional.
