News > Become part of our Science Team

You love looking at entire systems, dream about material and energy flows, and you can't stop talking about numbers and figures. 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 speak the language of system maps. You would also like to get equipped with  the necessary tools to approach personal growth, complex problems, and translate these into powerful solutions that will be applied in practice. You can reach these goals by joining us at Except Integrated Sustainability. 

We’re working on several projects in urban redevelopment, the food sector, and industrial transitions. We offer a traineeship for aspiring industrial ecologists, interested in working on integrated sustainable solutions from a scientific perspective. You need to be experienced in data research and, in particular, life cycle assessments. 

In addition to this, the following is of importance:

  • You are comfortable working independently, responsibly, but not unsupervised.
  • You are creative, a teamplayer, good at coordination, driven, and entrepreneurial.
  • You can dream making a life cycle analysis.
  • You have experience with system mapping tools (MFA & SFA).
  • Your English writing and speaking skills are perfect. Mastering Dutch is a nice bonus.
  • You are punctual, precise and professional.
  • You like to work on innovative, new approaches.
  • You can start today, and are available for the coming 6 months.

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