We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The JRC offers a variety of temporary and permanent work opportunities and training for scientific and technical staff.
Over two thirds of our people work on scientific projects to 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.
Other staff members carry out administrative or support activities.
