Come work with us

Join our team of trailblazers working to develop solutions to fateful issues impacting humanity.

The Trailblazer Strategy has identified four global-issue questions to which LUT seeks solutions:

  • Are we going to burn up everything?
  • Is humanity condemned to suffer from the water it has polluted?
  • Will waste be the grave of our future?
  • Will we let Europe degenerate to the world's back yard?

In short, the answer is: No! We will make a difference by taking a novel approach, and we will lead the way. Welcome to join our scientific community of 6,500 students and experts.
