Jobs at IPIS

IPIS is a horizontal and inclusive organization where the input of staff members is valued equally: We believe the ideas of our workers are more important than their position in the organigramme. Liaison Officers in several African countries support our fieldwork while our offices are in Antwerp, Belgium.

Job openings

IPIS is looking for: 
  • A Researcher specializing in human rights and environmental due diligence, with a focus on the minerals and arms trade sector.


Internships at IPIS

IPIS offers two main types of internship:

  • Through calls issued for specific projects. These will be made through our website (below) and in some instances through universities networks.
  • Through approaches from those with a specific research project that they wish to pursue within our organisation. Such interns can publish their papers as an intern paper publication or in some instances as a co-author.

Speculative applications without a specific research project may be considered on an ad hoc basis.

Internships typically last three to six months, and are in-house (Antwerp). The number of days per week can depend on requirements and availability. 

Internship offers generally involve the following benefits:

  • Personal supervision by one of our researchers
  • Office space and use of office equipment
  • Use of our working library
