Applying for a Job at KIT

We would be happy to receive your application preferably online. When applying for a job, attach your updated CV, relevant vocational training and work certificates, as well as the required proofs and documents.

Application Procedure

After receipt of your unsolicited application or – when applications are invited - upon expiry of the application deadline, we will check your qualifications and compare them with those of your competitors. If you are a suited candidate, you will be invited to a personal interview with your future superior and, in some cases, the responsible personnel officer. In case of a positive decision of your superior and personnel officer and upon agreement of the decision bodies, you will receive your employment contract and start your work at KIT at the agreed time. During the complete application procedure, you may contact the persons mentioned in the vacancy notice, whenever you have questions. After the start of your work, the responsible personnel officer from the Human Resources Business Unit will continue to assist you.

Unsolicited Applications

If you would like to send an unsolicited application to KIT, please check in advance whether there are current vacancy notices that fit to your qualifications. Note that unsolicited applications will not be considered automatically for filling current vacancies at KIT. Apart from the cover letter in which your desired activity should be mentioned, your application should contain an updated CV and all relevant certificates. Your application will be stored in our pool of applications for a period of three months.

We would very much appreciate you using our online application system (in German only) for your unsolicited application. Of course, you can also apply in writing.
