What We Offer

More than a job

At NILU, we work for our common future. Our research will contribute to a good climate, a healthy environment and sustainable societal solutions. This means that the job is not just a job: What we do during a day makes a difference.

At the same time, we believe in a healthy balance between work and leisure. We offer flexible hours, home office agreements, sponsored training and very good pension and insurance schemes. Wages in accordance with agreement. Most of our approx. 175 employees work at the head office in Kjeller, a short train ride from Oslo. We also have offices in Tromsø and Trondheim. In your everyday work at NILU, you will encounter:

  • An international and interdisciplinary environment with pleasant colleagues from all over the world
  • Great creativity and generous sharing of knowledge
  • Broad experience and good professional development opportunities
  • A global network of collaboration partners

NILU is an independent research foundation

This means that we have no owners who will take out dividends. Instead, all profits go back to the operation and development of socially beneficial research services. We also attach great importance to open research, open publishing and open source code – because knowledge exists to be shared.

A place for everyone

At NILU, all employees are equal, regardless of gender, age, functional level, creed/view of life, language, cultural differences and sexual orientation. We respect and value individual characteristics, and do not accept any form of discrimination.
