Job description

We are seeking an individual who is highly motivated to realise events and communication measures within the multifaceted MaP portfolio, including, for instance, symposia, workshops, academic courses and lectures.

Strong practical project management skills are essential, from conceptualisation to planning and effective implementation, along with financial management, evaluation and reporting. Ideally, you have already gained some hands-on experience in outreach, communication, and marketing campaigns and should have previously organised activities/events in an academic environment. Fluency in English and German is required.


We offer
