  • Generic “respected Sir” emails will not be considered.
  • We value diversity and we encourage individuals self-identifying as a member of a minority group to apply.
  • It is particularly important to us that our diversity in ethnicity, religious and political beliefs, sexual orientation, and gender is respected by each group member (present + future).
  • Your application documents will be deleted after 6 months in alignment with German data protection regulations.
  • We are often unable to respond to each individual application considering the large number of application submission. Rest assured: all incoming applications are considered. We often can only reply to those individuals with who we seek to set up an appointment for an interview. Interviews are, these days, most commonly done via ZOOM.
