About the employer

The Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, founded in 1558, with its 21,000 students distributed over ten different faculties leaves its mark on the image of the town. Students of either the university or the university of applied sciences make one quarter of the inhabitants of Jena. So, it is all right to say: There is no university in Jena, Jena is a university! Approximately 340 professors and 6,400 members of staff work at university and university hospital, the latter of which keeps developing into one of the most modern hospitals in Germany. The university puts emphasis on intensely taking care of its students, and works on creating a "Students' Paradise in Jena. (http://www.studentenparadies-jena.de/) Special programmes support students from abroad. When it comes to teaching, Jena University combines tradition and innovation: Apart from medicine, physics, psychology, business studies and economics, or sports, bio and social sciences - all of which are highly ranked - the so-called "smaller subjects", like for instance caucasiology, Romanian or Indo-Germanic studies, are sustained. The wide range of opportunities for studying at Thuringia's only classical university shapes its appearance as well as its attitude: to act without limits - interdisciplinarily and internationally. Therefore, a clear research profile has been established and will be further developed. Jena University's current research profile is composed of five priority research areas:

  • Optics, Photonics and Photonic Technologies
  • Innovative Materials and Technologies
  • Dynamics of Complex Biological Systems
  • Laboratory of the Enlightenment
  • Individuals and Social Change

They are completed by three academic cross-sections:

  • Analysis and Management of Complex Systems;
  • Cultural Contexts of Ageing;
  • Europe's Origin: Culture and Religion in the Ancient World and the Middle Ages
