The Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest research organisation. Its 18 research centres are akin to national laboratories, managing much of Germany's science infrastructure in six overarching research programmes in: Energy; Earth and Environment; Health;Aeronautics, Space and Transport; Matter; and Key Technologies.
The Association has a workforce of approximately 38,000 people working for 18 Research Centres which host over 250 Research Institutes across the whole of Germany.
Note: all scientists' posts are advertised in English (our scientific working language). A complete list of job vacancies at all levels and in all departments is only available in the German version of this search (change languages above).
