About Our Organization

For most of the year, Rostock (at the Baltic Coast) is a number one vacation area in Germany, with a very pleasant climate and nice beaches nearby. The University strives for a high proportion of women in research and teaching. Applications from qualified female scientists are therefore particularly welcome. Disabled persons will be given preference in filling vacancies within the existing legal provisions if equally qualified. Reimbursement of travelling costs for interviews is not possible according to the rules of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
