You love looking at entire systems, dream about material and energy flows, and you can't stop talking about it. You are the first to note that sustainability can't be looked at from an object level only. You want to put your skills to work and change the world around you. You are done with the old way of working, and you have experience working as a freelancer.

Please note: This is a position for an independent professional with an entrepreneurial drive within a cooperative, for a long-term collaborative engagement. We are in the process of creating new teams and we seek help from an experienced industrial ecologist.

We’ve been working on several projects in urban redevelopment, the food sector and industrial challenges. We offer two support positions for industrial ecologists interested in working on integrated sustainable solutions from a scientific perspective. You need to be experienced in data research and indicator design and development. Experience with carbon footprinting is desired.

In addition to the above, the following is of importance:

  • You are comfortable working as a freelancer
  • You are creative, a teamplayer, good at coordination, driven and entrepreneurial
  • You have experience with system mapping tools (MFA & SFA)
  • Your English and Dutch writing and speaking skills are perfect
  • You are punctual, precise and professional
  • You like to work on innovative, new approaches

Sounds like you? We’d love to hear from you. Please read our entire Work with us webpage carefully, and follow the procedure stated to apply.
