INP as employer
Motivated high-performance employees are the heart of our success – they make our vision a reality – namely to become THE competence center for plasma technology applications and their fundamentals in Germany and Europe – this is the only way our vision can become a reality. We support our employees in expanding their professional, as well as personal competencies, and within the framework of selective personnel development, we enable continuing education possibilities in-line with demand and organize internal qualification measures. Internationalization is one of the foundations of our Institute strategy – we promote international exchange and enable our employees to participate in research stays abroad, e.g. in the form of deployment to partner institutes or through support in applying for grants. The boundary conditions are crucial for outstanding scientific work. The research laboratories in the INP are provided with state-of-the-art devices, in some cases with equipment that is unique worldwide. We provide attractive and family-friendly working conditions for our employees. This includes flexible working hours, through which our employees can relatively flexibly and individually organize their work time. Home office possibilities are offered and these possibilities are gladly utilized, particularly by scientists for performing research, or finalizing their work for publication.
