The scientists of the Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung are involved in the field of academic education. They hold lectures at various educational institutions. They supervise doctoral, bachelor's and master's thesis at the institute, at universities and colleges.

In addition, we supervise doctoral, bachelor's and master's theses directly at the institute or at the corresponding universities and colleges. Please send your initiative application with the usual documents to the personnel department or directly to the respective contact person of the department you are interested in.

You can find job offers here.
