Equal Opportunities

RWTH Aachen University and the Cluster of Excellence see equal opportunities as an important part of a balanced and innovative research and teaching culture. Bringing together talented researchers, lecturers and students and enabling them to develop their full potential together, free of discrimination and restrictions based on gender, socio-economic or cultural background, is highly important to us.

We promote an open and diversity-friendly work environment in which teams work interculturally and interdisciplinarily, using individual strengths and perspectives to develop new strategies and ideas.

Equal treatment and non-discrimination must have top priority in the composition of a modern research community. Teaching and learning environments also benefit from a balanced composition of those working together in order to optimally use the talents of the individual employee and allowing room for personal and interpersonal development.
