Learn more about Fraunhofer IMS as an employer
At Fraunhofer IMS you will be involved in varied research projects. The focus is not only on one topic, but you are constantly opening up new problem areas and finding innovative solutions. Often, you will work across departments in order to utilize and further expand interdisciplinary knowledge. But we also regularly cooperate with other (international) research institutes or companies as part of our research work. Changing projects encourage and challenge you to advance new findings in research and to think outside the box. In addition, we offer training courses, attendance at conferences and conventions, and a job rotation system that give you the opportunity to develop your professional skills and thus qualify you to take on new tasks. Fraunhofer as an employer is an excellent reference on a resume. There is close cooperation between the institutes and industry. This is why the path after Fraunhofer often leads to industry. But an academic career or a spin-off are also possible next steps.
