Employment Opportunities

The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center integrates applied research, technical assistance, and information services to advance efforts in the areas of pollution prevention; water and energy conservation; and materials recycling and beneficial reuse. Our mission is to encourage and assist citizens, businesses, and government agencies to prevent pollution, conserve natural resources, and reduce waste to protect human health and the environment of Illinois and beyond.

The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center is part of the Prairie Research Institute (PRI), which stewards Illinois’ natural and cultural resources by providing objective and timely research, data, and expertise to federal, state, and local government decision makers, industry and businesses of all types and sizes, farmers, energy and water utilities, nonprofit organizations, and the public. With around 600 full-time staff, PRI is one of the largest research institutes at the University of Illinois and is home to the five state of Illinois surveys (Illinois Natural History Survey, Illinois State Archaeological Survey, Illinois State Geological Survey, Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, and Illinois State Water Survey). See employment opportunities for all of PRI.
