We connect everything

We, the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS, are one of the largest institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe's leading network for applied research. Our main research topics include the digital transformation and its impact on society, economics and technology.

Since 1988 we support our customers and partners in shaping and implementing the digital transformation. We understand ourselves as an intermediary between economics, science and public administration independent of providers and technology.

Change starts with us

Whether you want to join us for your apprenticeship or during your studies, do your doctorate while working independently on projects or contribute your valuable professional experience - at Fraunhofer FOKUS you will find the right start, and numerous opportunities to shape your career.

We are looking for qualified, curious and committed employees to develop solutions for the communication systems of the future with us. In addition to scientific staff, we are occasionally looking for reinforcement for our administrative team.

Unsolicited applications are also welcome.
