Work with us!

The world looks to the United Nations for solutions to complex problems everywhere; from ending conflict and alleviating poverty, to combating climate change and defending human rights. As a UN-affiliated institution, the University for Peace works tirelessly to contribute to world peace and progress, in keeping with the noble aspirations proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations.

Our staff is made up of a diverse group of professionals hailing from all over the world, all of whom are committed to generating an inclusive, respectful and positive work environment. The diversity of our people means that you will find yourself working in multi-cultural teams with people from all backgrounds and cultures, who have wide perspectives, experiences, and expectations, as well as approaches. Furthermore, because our staff is small in size, you will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with professionals at different stages in their careers, including senior-level personnel with a long history of proven success in the fields of peace and security, international law, peace and conflict studies, climate change, etc.

We are excited about your interest in working at the University for Peace. Please consult the available job opportunities below.
