People are at the heart of BIH’s work, and we aim to attract, develop and retain the brightest minds of trans ­lational research and management. We already have dedicated researchers and staff, but to meet our Strategy 2026 goals, we plan to recruit more by applying proven best­practice approaches and embracing gender equality and internationalization.

We aim to have filled dozens of key posts for the translational research commons by 2026, from BIH chairs to BIH professorships and junior group leaders.

The chairs will be research leaders with exceptio­nal academic track records. They will build our research programs and platforms, spearhead inno vative new research centers and aid recruitment.

BIH professorships will conduct independent research at the highest level and distinguish themselves through internationally recognized achievements. They will also enhance and strengthen our impact.

With the BIH Johanna Quandt Professorships, Stiftung Charité supports the establishment of three W2 professorships at the BIH, specifically for women.

Junior group leaders will be promising scientists in an early stage of their careers who can be expected to earn an international reputation.
