Volunteer work

DAI offers a limited range of volunteer work opportunities. In principle, our volunteers may work in any of our research and work areas, including our scientific infrastructure (libraries, archives, etc.) and project initiatives (restoration, technology infrastructure, etc.).

If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer and wish for further information, please contact the department/commission you would like to work for or our Berlin headquarters. We recommend inquiring about volunteer work possibilities in the respective areas before submitting an application. You can contact us by phone or email – we will be happy to answer your questions. Applications should only be submitted upon prior arrangement. All applications should be submitted digitally. Please include your CV, information on relevant skills, and a personal statement. Please be aware that volunteers will not receive remuneration or any other kind of payment. Details, scope and terms of volunteer positions will be arranged individually.
