Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is a leading, innovative and growing
university that is at the heart of society and actively contributes to
new developments in teaching and research. Our university has ten
faculties which span a wide range of disciplines, as well as several
institutes, foundations, research centres, and support services. Its
campus is located in the fastest-growing economic region in the
Netherlands (the Zuidas district of Amsterdam), and provides work for
over 4,500 staff and scientific education for more than 23,000 students.
Research at the Faculty of Sciences (https://science.vu.nl) focuses on
Earth sciences, natural sciences and informatics, life sciences, health
sciences, and environmental sciences. It offers a range of high-quality
BSc and MSc programmes. World-class teaching and cutting-edge research
activities go hand in hand.
The Department of Earth Sciences is one of the thirteen departments in
the Faculty of Sciences. It operates with two research clusters: 'Earth
and Climate' and 'Geology and Geochemistry' which teach the Earth
Sciences and Earth and Economics BSc and MSc programmes. The Earth and
Climate cluster has developed a strong teaching and research profile in
the field of climate change focusing on carbon and nitrogen cycle
research and landscape dynamics, both on a regional and global scale,
and based on both fieldwork and modelling. Subjects include boreal and
arctic carbon dynamics, hydrological modelling, terrestrial disturbances
such as wildfires and deforestation, atmospheric dynamics of aerosols
and greenhouse gases. Furthermore, in the larger cluster context, our
integrated approach combines expertise in proxy development,
(Quaternary) climate modelling, unraveling of landscape evolution and
modelling, and reconstructions of climate evolution from terrestrial and
