APOPO is an equal opportunity employer and considers applicants for all positions without regard to race, colour, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, gender identity, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, military/veteran status, or citizenship status.
APOPO was founded in response to the growing awareness that landmines kill and maim people and hamper development in post-conflict areas. Methods to rid affected countries of landmines were slow so a small team in Belgium founded APOPO to develop a fast, simple, and cost-efficient mine clearance technology that could be sustained within national mine action programs in low-income countries. APOPO developed a unique method using trained rats. Over 25 years later, APOPO is a global leader in scent detection animals, including both trained rats (HeroRATs) and the first-ever free-running, long-range Mine Detection Dogs (HeroDOGs). As a research organization, APOPO is always at the forefront of developing new humanitarian and environmental scent detection applications. Our core operational activities are in the fields of mine action and tuberculosis (TB) control.
