We are currently looking for a Front End Developer.

Part Time Front End Developer

United Academics is an NGO that advocates for open access to scientific research. We firmly believe that knowledge shouldn’t be hidden behind a paywall.

United Academics is involved in two activities:

The Magazine: An online magazine where we put scientific research in the context of everyday life. Making science sexy!

The OALibrary: Our Open Access Library. All publicly funded research papers should be made open access (no fees charged to view and download a research paper). The Open Access movement is backed by EU, which established that by 2020 all EU countries must make sure that all publicly funded research papers are immediately available in Open Access.

The Role

We are looking for a part time Front End developer. There are several ongoing projects right now, and the right person would be able to seamlessly switch focus from week to week. Our team is small, so you should be fairly self-sufficient (though we are always here, if you have questions!). We’re interested in someone who likes a challenge, who is a fast learner, and who could potentially grow their role far beyond just front-end development (most of our longer-term staff began this way!).

This role is ideal for students, as you will have the ability to work when you want, as long as you’re working 20 hours per week.

Desired Skills

Python, Django



Fluent in English. Some knowledge of Dutch is helpful.

The ever-burning passion for allowing anyone, regardless of their financial or academic status, to access scientific knowledge

Working hours:

Flexible Part time.

Starting Date:

As soon as possible.
