Information on employment

We have exciting topics in research, technology, infrastructure and management, a family-friendly and international environment, development opportunities and interesting locations to offer you. If we have made you curious about the Alfred Wegener Institute as an employer, you might also be interested in the more formal, but still important aspects of working at the AWI: What will I earn? What are the working hours? How much holiday time will I have?

Just look at the information that we have compiled for you. In case we can help you with any further questions, just contact us.

And if you should ever feel disadvantaged as an employee, we do of course offer, next to various internal conflict resolution instruments, a Board of Appeal under the General Equal Treatment Act.
