Research at the IfL

Various disciplines are represented at the IfL. Experienced and young scientists (doctoral students, postdocs) work together in the research teams, which are mostly multidisciplinary. The IfL regularly advertises positions for scientific cooperation and promotes young researchers. You can find out more here

Student assistants and internships

Students support the work in the research areas and research groups of the IfL. There they gain first experiences in spatial science research and its methods. The IfL regularly advertises positions for student assistants.

As a non-university research institute, we are actively involved in the promotion of young scientists. To this end, we offer, among other things, a six-week internship programme every spring in which up to 15 students from Germany and abroad can participate. You can find out more about this here

Vocational training

The IfL is committed to in-company training and offers apprenticeships for the professions "office management assistant" and "media and information services, specializing in libraries".

Gender equality and compatibility of work and private life

At the IfL, gender equality and the compatibility of family and career are regarded and promoted as an essential component and guiding principle of successful work. The IfL is a member of the Dual Career Network Central Germany, which is committed to the professional integration of both life partners in the region Leipzig / Halle (Saale). For this purpose, the cooperation partners examine applications from other network participants and, in case of corresponding vacancies of the life partner of a network member who is eligible due to his or her qualification, give the opportunity for a personal interview.
