239 Academic & University Jobs in Europe
Academic mobility between Europe’s higher education institutions is facilitated by the European Higher Education Area, which includes 49 countries and promotes Europe as a world education destination, increasing its popularity with international academics and students. Europe’s universities are under increasing budgetary strain but leaders recognise the importance of recruiting top-quality staff to maintain the highest teaching and research standards. It is widely agreed that a knowledge economy is essential in tough economic times, and Europe’s universities are gaining ground on US institutions in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Europe has 345 universities in the world top 800 (2015-16), with institutions in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland doing particularly well.
