Robert Koch Institute’s new Centre for International Health Protection is hiring

Ever since the Ebola crisis in 2014/15 in West Africa, it has become obvious that national and international health protection are closely interlinked. Consequently, national health policies should integrate an international perspective. In January 2019, RKI’s new "Centre for International Health Protection (ZIG)" has started operating. Its main tasks are information management, the development of evidence-based methods as well as providing support for the implementation of projects on international health protection.

For ZIG, RKI is now hiring a Head of Unit Preparedness and Operations Support, a Head of Unit for Evidence-Based Public Health as well as many other (scientific) staff. Contracts are unlimited – apply now!
