The KIT is The Research University in the Helmholtz Association. KIT was established in 2009 by the merger of the Technical University of Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe Research Center. With over 9000 employees, more than half of which are working in research, the KIT is one of the biggest research institutions in Europe. The annual budget amounts to about EUR 900 million. The excellent research infrastructure extends from state-of-the-art laboratory equipment to the world’s only large-scale research facility of its kind.
Hence, the conditions we offer to researchers at more than 100 institutes are unique in German science: Nowhere else are university tradition and program-oriented research combined more closely. Nowhere else can researchers use the infrastructure of a large-scale research center and collaborate at a university of excellence across the disciplines of natural sciences, engineering, economics, the humanities and social sciences. We offer reliable career paths in research. Nowhere else are the training options offered to young researchers greater than at the only German university of excellence with a national large-scale research sector. At KIT, the way from the scientific finding to the product is shorter. Promoting the entrepreneurial spirit of researchers is of high priority at KIT.
We offer a fascinating and international work environment to our employees in administrative and technical departments. They accompany and support our scientists searching for answers to the big future questions of our society. Become part of KIT’s community and help master the global challenges facing humankind by trend-setting research contributions.
