The tasks carried out by the 91 institutions in the Leibniz Association are just as diverse as the institutes themselves. 18,700 staff are employed in research, IT services, libraries and administration. Why don’t you join Leibniz, too?
3,800 doctoral candidates work at Leibniz institutions. In addition to the support they receive at individual institutions, the Leibniz Association has also implemented overarching structures to promote junior researchers.
The Leibniz Association offers a broad palette of apprenticeships. Leibniz institutions participate in the system of dual vocational education and training and cooperate with vocational schools, educational institutions, local chambers of commerce and the Federal Employment Agency. Most of the institutions which train apprentices are able to offer them at least short-term employment after they have completed their training.
Gender equality in science is one of the Leibniz Association’s central objectives. It employs various tools to support the institutions in their efforts to achieve this goal.
