Working at NIVA

A job with meaning

NIVA is an independent and leading research institution working to find solutions for the sustainable development of our society.

More than 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water, and we create, use and share knowledge about how water affects nature, the environment, climate and society. Our knowledge is an important basis for the development of policy and business. Working at NIVA is exciting and fun! 

Our vision is research for a sustainable future. We want to ensure that today's needs are met without damaging the opportunities for future generations. Changes in climate and nature are intricately linked, and today's environmental challenges require more complex solutions than ever before. This means that we must use our knowledge in new ways to help solve these major challenges.  

NIVA is an independent research foundation. Our financial surplus is invested back in the business, through research, scientific equipment, and employee skills development. All with the aim of creating a better world. 

Researching solutions 

Our knowledge has value when it is used and relevant. That is why we work closely with clients and society to understand their needs and contribute to a sustainable future. Through research, environmental monitoring, studies, consultancy, and innovative solutions, we contribute to a blue-green transition and good solutions to societal challenges.  

Are you interested in environmental issues and want to be part of an organization that works science-based for a sustainable future?
