The Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest research organisation. Its 19 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 40,000 people working for 19 Research Centres 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).
