Why is broad employability important?

Leiden University has set certain criteria which members of the permanent academic staff must meet.  One significant condition is that research and teaching should be closely interwoven. A further consideration is that tasks in the area of administration and supervision require particular skills. 

For a complete description of the quality criteria, please refer to: Referentieprofiel resultaatgebieden onderwijs en onderzoek Universiteit Leiden. (in Dutch)

You can discuss with your supervisor how you can fulfill this requirement for broad employability, for example through your teaching activities, organizational tasks, networking, following a course, etc. You can make an appointment via the Career Advice department.
