Opportunities for Postdocs

Forschungszentrum Jülich offers postdocs a wide range of employment opportunities.

Kiendler Scharr

The "classic" route is a fixed-term contract as a postdoc or a postdoctoral researcher. You can either work on one of the Jülich research priorities within programme-oriented funding or you can conduct research for a project with third-party funding, for example, a project funded by the EU or a project within the framework of a cooperation with an industrial company.

To work as head of a Young Investigators Group, you will not only need a PhD but also research experience, ideally in conjunction with a stay abroad.

In the technical infrastructure and research management, scientists and engineers with a PhD are also needed in Jülich. We can usually offer these highly qualified individuals good long-term perspectives and excellent further development opportunities.
