About the employer

The Radboud Hypatia Track develops talents in the phase of setting up or further developing their own research groups. Inspiring employees and colleagues as well as increasing the influence of their own research group with respect to their vision plays a central role. Whether it is about finances, management, insight into decision-making processes or understanding the players involved, this phase focuses on leadership skills and practical understanding of the functioning of organisations.

The Radboud Hypatia Track plays an important role in teaching participants to stand up for the interests of their own research group in a dynamic environment, through training modules, peer reviews and individual guidance. The group is given an important role in shaping his/her actual program.

Personal guidance

  • Every talent is guided by a Talent Manager with whom they discuss their experiences in the program and their learning points in personal development. In this way, talents are challenged to further shape their personal growth.
  • In addition, every talent has a mentor, a senior scientist from another discipline, from whose experiences the talent can benefit.
  • And last but not least, the talents learn from each other! The participants find that this mutual exchange between talents in the same career phase is one of the most valuable aspects of this program.


Researchers at Radboudumc are open to apply to this program. The selection is made by a committee consisting of two members of the Talent Board and a Talent Manager.

We also offer an Hyaptia Tenure Track Grant which is open to external candidates. External candidates can apply for the grant and once accepted may automatically partake in the Radboudumc Hypatia Track.
