Career & Internships

The German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS) has about 200 employees in Research, Policy Advice, Training and Service Facilities. Two-thirds of them work as researchers. IDOS pursues an interdisciplinary approach.

On a regular basis, we offer job positions within its research departments, at irregular intervals also within the service facilities. The Institute has been involved in vocational training since 2003. The Institute trains young people to become Office Communication Managers (Kaufleute für Bürokommunikation). For German and international university students, we offer internships in Research, Training, and the Communications team.

The institute promotes equal opportunities for women and men, and the reconciliation of work and family life. In 2012, the Institute was awarded the certificate berufundfamilie for its family-friendly personnel policy. Respective offers include special flexi-days for employees with small children, flexible workplace solutions and additional services such as family-related allowances for childcare costs.
