Opslaan als favoriet E-mailalert

Founded in 2003, the University of Luxembourg is the only public university in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Multilingual, international and focused on research, it also defines itself as a modern institution with a human face.

The University of Luxembourg, through its Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine, aims for excellence in research and in the education of biomedical sciences and health professions. A new Bachelor's degree in Medicine started in September 2020. Three Medical Specialisations, in General Medicine, Neurology and Oncology are also offered. Seven new Bachelors of Science in Nursing (Bachelor of Nursing in general care, and other Bachelors in the fields of surgery, anaesthesia, paediatrics, mental health, midwifery, radiology) are now planned to commence in September 2023.

The University of Luxembourg will organise these Bachelors in Nursing by combining theoretical training using the latest technology with practical training in hospitals, clinics or outpatient clinics in collaboration with the various institutes in the country and foreign partners.

In this context, the University is recruiting a Full Professor in Nursing sciences.

Your Role...

The professor will be attached to the University on a full-time basis. He/she will have a leadership role in building and coordinating nursing education.

The academic part will be divided between teaching and research:


The holder of the position will build and co-direct the Bachelors in Nursing and will be responsible for the selection of students into the programme, the establishment of the training plan for nurses, the organisation of theoretical and practical teaching, and the evaluation during and at the end of the course, in relation with the teachers and tutors of the clinical placements. More particularly, the presence on the campus of students in medicine, biology and nursing provides us with the possibility to establish common courses, to help students discover and understand the specificities of their different training and future professions at a very early stage and to have them work together in modern professional simulation environments. This pooling of teaching will be based on the collaborative and joint work of teachers from the different health programmes.


The candidate will be responsible for developing nursing research aimed at:

  • The improvement of the quality of care
  • Patient well-being
  • Quality of work life

And this within the general framework of improving public health, in collaboration with the patient him/herself (“partner patient”), with internal partners in the various Faculties or interdisciplinary Centres, and with external national or international partners.

The holder will therefore have teaching and research experience and ideally significant clinical experience in nursing.

The distribution between the different activities (academic/research, or even professional) will be adapted according to the holder’s profile.

What we expect from you…

The ideal candidate hired by the University is a teacher-researcher who meets the following criteria:

  • Holder of a nursing degree and a doctorate (PhD) with an internationally recognised reputation and research expertise based on the quality of his/her research work as evidenced by international publications in the field of nursing
  • Administrative experience and leadership qualities are also essential
  • Field experience in nursing education, including theoretical teaching and supervision of trainees
  • Experience in nursing research and supervision of research or PhD thesis
  • Connection to nursing education departments in universities abroad
  • Responsibilities in European nursing societies

Language profile:

The University of Luxembourg operates in a multilingual context. The person selected for this position must be fluent in English and in one of the following two languages: French or German. The University encourages its staff to learn another administrative language of Luxembourg and provides access to language courses for this purpose.
