In addition we develop and operate innovative information services and 
e-research solutions for a precise research and intelligent analysis of 
these data. For this purpose we conduct applied research. Our customers

The systems are developed in joint projects with renowned research institutions,
universities, archives, and libraries. We use state-of-the-art technologies with
a special focus on open source software in order to produce and operate performant,
safe, and maintenance-friendly systems. For projects focussing on research data 
infrastructures and smart laboratory environments (linking laboratory equipment

and nanosafety research, we are looking for a Chemoinformatician who is interested in 
the digital transformation in chemistry and related disciplines.
