EU Science Hub


The JRC employs over 3000 people, from throughout the EU, who bring their skills, talents, passion and rigour into the scientific activities meant to underpin EU policies. Over two thirds of our people work on scientific projects while the rest carry out administrative or support activities.

We seek to attract and host researchers (grant holders), senior scientists, seconded national experts, and trainees, primarily from the EU Member States and candidate countries to EU membership. We believe these people bring advanced skills, knowledge and expertise to help resolve current and future scientific challenges. In turn, they benefit from the cultural diversity, multidisciplinary research domains and state-of-the-art research facilities. The JRC offers a variety of temporary and permanent work opportunities and training for scientific and technical staff.
