In addition to personnel recruitment and retention measures for permanent staff and employees funded by third parties, promoting the in part international new scientific talent plays a major role.  Numerous post-docs and doctoral candidates work at the FBN. Internships and guest residences of external researchers are also supported under cooperation agreements. Bachelor and master theses are written in cooperation with the FBN as well.

Recruiting qualified new employees is not only important to us in the academic field. Training biology laboratory assistants in particular is of great importance to us as well.
