Career options at federal research institutes

Federal research institutes offer practical, problem-oriented and interdisciplinary research at the interface of politics, industry and society. Due to their unique tasks, they offer very diverse career opportunities. Interesting topics and an excellent infrastructure offer attractive working conditions. The personal development of each individual and the compatibility of career and family are of particular concern to us. In this workshop, the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) and the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) will give you a practical overview of available career paths. Postdocs and junior research group leaders from the institutes will share their own experience and the participants are invited to ask questions to them and other representatives from the upper management and early career scientists support offices of the institutes.
