Our employees conduct research, teach and ensure that our university runs smoothly. They also provide services to the general public. As a result, the range of jobs on offer at our university is very diverse. On the one hand, we offer a wide spectrum of professional opportunities for those working in academia – spanning from A for Astronomy to Z for Zoology. On the other hand, we employ highly qualified specialists from various fields, including commercial clerks, animal keepers, lab technicians and facility managers, just to mention a few. The University of Bern deems it very important to give young people a good start into their professional life. To that end, we train apprentices in various professions and offer students interesting positions as junior research assistants in our institutes or in central administration.
