Flexible working hours
Studying can take up a lot of your time and be truly exhausting – we are well aware of that. For that reason, you can coordinate your working hours individually with your team. We will find a way to work together!
Do you want to understand how the processes at the institute work? No problem – we organize a range of events that provide you with all the important information right from the very beginning to help you get directly acclimatized here. There are also named contact persons available to answer any questions you have and offer you support. In addition, you also receive instruction in our internal systems. So, there is nothing standing in the way of a successful start!
Working together as equals
Each of us makes an important contribution to the IWES’ success. As such, working together as equals is something which goes without saying for us. We have established flat hierarchies, are on first-name terms, and encourage collaborative and dynamic teamwork.
During your work here, be that as a student assistant or in the form of an internship, you will not be left alone. Naturally, we will also offer you support in the preparation of your thesis. You will have a supervisor by your side to help you with your concerns, but other colleagues and students will also be there for you.
Networking and development events
Depending on your field of work, you can complete training courses and join the IWES student network. The Fraunhofer-wide »Hiwi-Days« are also held once a year. This event offers you the chance to learn more about the diversity of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, meet interesting people, and take advantage of the advice and workshops on offer for your career orientation. The Fraunhofer-Talent Take Off and the Fraunhofer Science Campus might also be of interest to you.
Our IWES spirit as the key to success
Acting as a team. Living diversity. Seizing opportunities. Those are just some of the values we live by at the IWES. If you, too, can identify with these values, apply and become a part of our institute now!
