G’day – Guten Tag!
We are here to (re)connect with Australian researchers, policy makers, and industry partners and to get you interested in co-operating with Leibniz Institutes.
We were back – only bigger and better!

The Leibniz Delegation to Australia - a review with pictures.


About Leibniz

The Leibniz Association connects 96 independent research institutes that range in focus from natural, engineering and environmental sciences to economics, spatial and social sciences and the humanities. Leibniz Institutes address issues of social, economic and ecological relevance.

They conduct basic and applied research, including in the interdisciplinary Leibniz Research Alliances, maintain scientific infrastructure, and provide research-based services. Leibniz institutions collaborate intensively with universities as well as with industry and other partners at home and abroad. The Leibniz Institutes employ around 20,500 people, including 11,500 researchers. The financial volume amounts to 2 billion euros.

Your Career in Germany and with Leibniz

If you are thinking of studying or pursuing research in Germany, please consult Research in Germany and the DAAD IC office in Australia for funding possibilities and career opportunities.

Once you have found a Leibniz Institute that suits your research interests, please contact the PI of your choice directly and consult them about opportunities. By the way – you do not have to speak German!

The Leibniz Association wants to attract the best scientists worldwide. In 2022, international scientists accounted for 28,5% of academic staff, 41% of doctoral students and 40% of post-doctoral researchers.
