Located in Ispra (Italy), the Institute for Environment and Sustainability is one of the seven institutes that constitute the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

In line with the JRC mission, the aim of IES is to provide scientific and technical support to the European Union strategies for the protection of the environment contributing to a sustainable development. IES works in close collaboration with official laboratories, research centres and industries of the EU's Member States, creating a bridge between the EU's policies and the European citizen.

The combination of complementary expertise in the fields of experimental sciences, modelling and remote sensing put the IES in a strong position to contribute to the implementation of the European Research Area and to the achievement of a sustainable development.

Being structured in six scientific Units, the Institute at present is engaged within seven main fields of activity:

  • Sustainable Use of Natural Resources: Water, Soils, Forests
  • Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development
  • Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation
  • Environmental Risks and Natural Hazards
  • Sustainable transport and Air Quality
  • Environmental Dimension of Development Co-operation
  • Environmental Monitoring and Information Systems: GMES and INSPIRE

In order to increase and reinforce its capacity, and in order to encourage researcher to enhance their experience in an international, multicultural and multidisciplinary environment, the Institute for Environment and Sustainability is launching a call for interest for Grantholders for Doctoral, Post-doctoral and Senior Research Positions.

The grants are aimed at developing training and mobility opportunities for researchers throughout their careers.

We are committed to a strong policy of equal opportunities. We will not discriminate against researchers in any way on the basis of gender, age, ethnic, national or social origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation, language, disability, political opinion, social or economic condition.
