Working at HZI
Working at HZI means joining an interdisciplinary infection research centre providing an inspiring and international atmosphere and excellent research opportunities. Together with the best minds, we want to achieve maximum impact in combating infectious diseases. Working at HZI also means that you can access a selected network of regional, national and international partners as well as state-of-the-art infrastructure.
The qualifications and motivation of our staff members are a fundamental prerequisite for staying competitive in international research circles. This means that our employees are encouraged to continuously improve their qualifications. The Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research supports this lifelong learning with the multi-faceted employee development programme “HZI Careers”.
In addition to the traditional education programmes, such as language skills and software applications, we also train the soft skills and leadership qualities of our employees. It is important to us that our staff members improve their social skills between colleagues, so we offer individual coaching and team development programmes as well.
