DSMZ is an equal opportunity employer. We have signed the Diversity Charta (Charta der
) and promote the recognition, appreciation and integration of diversity at our institute. We pursue to increase the proportion of women in higher scientific and managing positions and to eliminate systemic discrimination and unconscious bias.

The guidelines of the Leibniz Association for equal opportunities are tightly implemented in the institute’s strategy and measures are recorded in the institute’s gender equality plan, which fulfills the requirements of the funding criteria of Horizon Europe. To continuously improve work life balance at DSMZ we are certified with the audit berufundfamilie® gGmbH (audit work-and-family).
