Staff in the research service, IT and administration

Every exploratory research vessel needs a good engine. It is below deck and cannot be seen from the outside, but it is essential for the success of a journey. And this is also the case at GESIS: Our administrative staff makes everything possible so that our scientists can concentrate fully on their research.

I'm motivated by exciting and always new tasks, a lot of flexibility and room to help shape things; perhaps most importantly, colleagues who also enjoy their work. In my job, specifically: helping to build new things.

Dr. Bernhard Miller, Presidential Staff

For me, what is special about GESIS is that the work and the staff at GESIS are so diverse and that there are always experts on a topic somewhere that you can ask or with whom you can collaborate.

Dr. Dorothée Behr, SDM
