Equal Opportunities

Our cutting-edge research thrives on the ideas and excellence of our employees, regardless of their gender or background.

Equal opportunity is a core value of the Helmholtz Association: Everyone should be able to develop optimally, both personally and professionally - at all stages of their career. We support this goal by, among other things:

  • A wide range of offers to reconcile work and family life, which can also be adapted to individual needs
  • Promoting women who aspire to management positions
  • Including equal opportunities as a topic in all talent management programs and measures
  • Equal opportunities as an evaluation criterion in the review of research programs
