Vacancies at the Fraunhofer IMWS


Diversity is our strength. We are people from the engineering sciences, physics, mathematics, chemistry, mineralogy and much more. At the same time, we all pull together to understand the nature of materials and to help to shape the technical progress of our company.

We are looking for people who develop or carry out projects, who think of ideas before other or work meticulously to figure out puzzles, who are curious and are always willing to learn something new, who advise clients and publish new work.

An overview of the vacancies at the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle is provided in the careers portal of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
