Professor Schrijver has held tenured positions with the Mathematisch Centrum in Amsterdam, and the University of Amsterdam. He has spent leaves of absence in Oxford and Szeged (Hungary). In 1983 he was appointed to the post of Professor of Mathematics at Tilburg University, The Netherlands, with a partial engagement at the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica in Amsterdam.
