Helmholtz Zentrum München - The Right Decision

As an employer, Helmholtz Zentrum München offers you attractive and inspiring working conditions for internationally competitive research as well as interesting positions in administration and in science management. 


Excellent Research

The Center focuses on the pathogenesis of common diseases as affected by genetics and environmental influences. We are particularly interested in Diabetes mellitus, chronic lung diseases and allergies. Our exceptionally well-equipped institutes and research units have access to cutting edge infrastructure and are subject to regular international evaluations. In addition to excellence in basic research, the Center concentrates in particular on the systematic further development of these research results for daily use and translates them into benefits for the general public.

Networking Regionally and Globally

Helmholtz Zentrum München has over 1200 scientific cooperation agreements with excellent partners across the world. Helmholtz Zentrum München is involved in all six German Health Research Centers. Due to our excellent networks not just in the region of Munich, but also across Germany and across the world, we offer a stimulating academic environment and first-rate career prospects.



Education and Training

The education and training of our junior scientists is a matter particularly close to our heart. In 2010, the Center set up the first graduate school for environmental health (HELENA), which trains over 400 doctoral students at an interdisciplinary level. In doing so, we cooperate closely with Munich’s top-ranking universities.
In addition, we offer approximately 50 trainee positions for eight vocational training disciplines and two integrated degree programs.

Helmholtz Zentrum München has repeatedly received the Total E-Quality Award for equal opportunities. The compatibility of family and career is very important to us. We therefore offer very flexible working hours as well as childcare directly on campus. Helmholtz Zentrum München has been a member of the Munich Dual Career Office since 2008.
