Working at the VUB
For almost 50 years, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel has stood for freedom, equality and connectedness. These values are strongly present on our campuses, in our students as well as our staff. At the VUB, you’ll find a diverse collection of personalities: pure innovators and especially people who are 100% their authentic selves. With about 3.500 employees, we are the largest Flemish-speaking employer in Brussels, an international city with which we are all too happy to be connected, and around which our four campuses are located.
The "European Power Electronics and Drives Association" - EPE - is an international non-profit association under Belgian law, located in Brussels, Belgium. The goals of the Association are to promote and coordinate the exchange and the publication of technical, scientific and economic knowledge in the field of Power Electronics and Drives.
The EPE secretariat is hosted at the department of Electrical Engineering and Energy Technology (ETEC) of the VUB.
The yearly EPE conference (1000+ international delegates, 1M euro+) is the association's flagship product. The conference looks forward to a promising future in which new power electronic technologies emerge and unique knowledge becomes a global trade and differentiation.
For daily operations of the member secretariat, we are looking for a replacement to succeed our retiring Secretary General.
