ILVO is a dynamic, multidisciplinary and future-oriented research institute whose mission is economically, ecologically and socially sustainable agriculture and fisheries. Every day, more than 570 ILVO employees work to make this mission a reality, but we still need new, driven colleagues!

ILVO works on a diversity of challenging research questions. To achieve our goals, we need a motivated, multidisciplinary team where every employee can develop his or her talents. We therefore have several career paths where our employees can grow according to their potential and their ambition. Beginning researchers (masters and doctoral students) have the opportunity to work on groundbreaking research in a wide range of research topics. In addition to research work, we have a great number of supportive and technical functions: management, ICT, field workers, technicians, engineers, veterinarians, lab techs, and financial and administrative functions.

Working at ILVO means continual learning and professional development: ILVO invests greatly in its employees and offers plenty of opportunities to learn new techniques and procedures via workshops, professional trainings, internships and networking.

Our employees’ welfare is of primary importance. For this reason we strive for balance between work and free time, including flexible working hours and 35 days of vacation per year in addition to several Belgian and Flemish holidays.
