  • The deadline for applications is different for each position and can be found at the bottom of the respective vacancy posting.

  • That differs from vacancy to vacancy. As a general rule, it depends on whether the selection process has already begun. If you submit your application and it is no longer possible to consider it, we will let you know.

  • As a general rule, the processing and selection process takes longer for speculative applications, which is why we recommend reckoning with approximately three months.

  • The exact conditions depend on your nationality and where you are matriculated as a student (insofar as you are still a student). In general, you will require a valid residency and work permit for employment. You will need to consult your respective embassy or consulate for exact details on your personal visa requirements.

  • The preferred solution is to apply online via the respective vacancy posting. For speculative applications from students, you can also find a posting online that you can use to apply. Please send all speculative applications from non-students to our contact address: bhv.personal@iwes.fraunhofer.de. The preferred format is PDF.

    For employees who are not students, the employment process takes approx. six weeks.
