Job Description

The areas of research that will require support vary from day to day and from year to year. However, they will broadly cover the following areas:

  • Water policy and governance (freshwater and marine).
  • Industrial pollution control policy and implementation.
  • Waste policy.
  • Institutional governance, including in non-EU countries.

The research is funded through a variety of mechanisms, ranging from multi-year research framework funding to short-term consultancy contracts with the European Commission or Member State governments.

Particular aspects of the job will include:

  • Supporting research through gathering data, information, interviews, etc., relevant to specific projects.
  • Undertaking analysis (quantitative and/or qualitative) of data, literature, etc.
  • Contributing to the writing of reports, papers and other research outputs.
  • Contributing to the preparation of tenders and proposals for further research.
  • Contributing to management of projects, project database, presentations at meetings, etc., as appropriate.

IEEP is a relatively small organisation, so like other staff the appointed candidate will be required to show commitment and flexibility in undertaking a range of general tasks in pursuit of the smooth running, effectiveness and development of the Institute.

  • A postgraduate degree or equivalent qualification in a relevant natural or social science discipline (natural science/European studies/ European law);

  • A good level of computer literacy including working knowledge of Microsoft Office applications and experience of web based research;
  • Enthusiasm and adaptability to work across a range of subjects as part of a team, and ability to communicate effectively with staff within IEEP and in other organisations.


  • Understanding and knowledge of EU affairs, including, policies, EU institutions, and policy-making processes.

IEEP is a small organisation, so like other senior staff, the post holder will be required to show commitment and flexibility in undertaking a range of general management tasks in pursuit of the smooth running, effectiveness and development of the Institute.

Salary range: £21,000 – 26,000 gross annual salary (Appointment at the higher end of the scale will be dependent on previous experience)
