10 good reasons ...

... to work for Fraunhofer

  • Young colleagues
    The average age of scientific staff is under 40.

    Graduates can qualify for a responsible position in industry in an application-oriented working environment. Fraunhofer’s Institutes work closely with this sector and each year an average of ten percent of staff move across to industry.
  • 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.
