The first and obvious reason for you to join us may be the unique scientific environment as well as the possibility to work with internationally renowned experts in the interdisciplinary and collaborative field of ageing research.
Apart from this there are at least four more good reasons for you to work with us:
Starting a job at a new place and even a new city and country can be an exciting but also overwhelming experience. We support all our international guests and new employees with extensive help in all administrative matters: starting with finding a new place to live, registering at the city hall and at the foreign office and looking for the right kindergarten or school for your children.
For all private and social matters we have implemented a buddy program to complement what is important for us: that you feel welcome and integrated in Cologne and at the MPI for Biology of Ageing from the beginning on!
With our various career services, including a career and alumni network, career coaching and advising, we address the individual need of each employee and help everyone to shape and develop their own future career path. We appreciate and foster the diverse talents of our employees and help you discover what to do for your next career step.
We welcome everyone who wants to contribute to further develop the institute in a positive direction!
Our PhD and postdoc representatives are well connected with the administration and management boards of our institute and have a great impact in the institute’s development. Our career network, health management steering group and sustainability groups live from the ideas of their members, who organize workshops, seminar series, health days and many other events. With every step we take, we are always eager to learn from each other and cherish the initiative from our staff members.
