Ways to apply

Obvious? Yes, and the basis for a good start!

You can apply for the various exciting jobs in our institutes and facilities via e-mail or regular mail. No matter which option you choose, invest the necessary time and effort – the HR department will only consider applications that contain all the documents required. Your application should consist of a cover letter – including the institute and vacancy reference number (where available) – as well as your CV and qualification certificates. The vacancy listing will indicate which HR department you should address the application to. If you are applying speculatively, you can find the appropriate HR department in our overview of all the DLR institutes and facilities.

How to submit your application properly

Start your application by clicking on 'Apply now', which you will find in every vacancy notice. This will take you through the application process.

Applying via e-mail ("Apply online now") is the best option. Please attach your cover letter, CV and qualification certificates as PDF files, which shouldn’t exceed 5 MB.

If you like to have things down on paper, you might prefer to apply via regular mail. Send your complete application package to the relevant HR department. You will also find the address by clicking on 'Apply by post'.

We look forward to receiving your application!
