... to work for Fraunhofer

  • Doctorate subjects
    Projects provide good doctorate subjects.
  • Continuing education
    Fraunhofer invests money in qualification through continuing education. eLearning, vocational training and continuing professional development seminars are designed and organized for all employees.
  • Good working conditions
    New entrant surveys say it all: best laboratory equipment, excellent working atmosphere, attractive assignments, high level of personal responsibility and measures to ensure a healthy work-life balance.
