Job openings

DKMS is the largest database network in the world and is growing steadily. Our goal is to find a suitable donor for every patient. In addition to our day-to-day work, we are continually expanding the size of the database with innovative and unconventional projects. In order to achieve our goal, we need support in our fight against blood cancer.

How to apply

You can find our current job postings on the international DKMS job portal, where you can also submit an online application for any of the positions. If you see no suitable jobs posted, you can also send a general application for consideration in this way. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider applications sent by mail, so please always use the job portal to send your documents. Thank you for your understanding.


After receipt, applications are processed and forwarded in batches to the respective department for a preliminary selection. This may take some time, so we ask that you please be patient. Suitable candidates will be contacted by telephone or by e-mail and invited to an interview. All candidates will receive written feedback at the end of the application process. In exceptional cases, this may also take some time – perhaps because we are offering other open positions to suitable candidates. In line with the German Federal Data Protection Act, application documents sent in the mail will be returned at the end of the application process. Documents received by e-mail will be destroyed.
