Forschungszentrum Jülich


Conducting research for a changing society: This is what drives us at Forschungszentrum Jülich. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, we aim to tackle the grand challenges of our times. How can we make a success of the energy transition and mitigate the effects of climate change? What challenges are emerging due to the increasing digitization of our society? Will we succeed in understanding the human brain? And how can we facilitate the transition to a bio-based sustainable economy? Come and work with us at our scientific institutes, in our technical or administrative infrastructure, or in research management alongside roughly 6,400 colleagues at one of Europe’s biggest research centres and help make a contribution to solving societal challenges. Help us to shape change! In their work, our employees are supported by an excellent information provision. Furthermore, Forschungszentrum Jülich is characterized by an international and interdisciplinary atmosphere. We are particularly committed to providing the appropriate working conditions and expert advice for combining family and career.

Our employees can also take advantage of numerous tailor-made courses for further qualification and continuing professional development.
