Administration career at the DAI

As a research institution with global scope, the DAI offers administrative tasks around the world. Our administrators support every DAI department, office, and project in the fulfillment of their local tasks, organizing the necessary human, financial, technological, and construction resources. Depending on the location, administrative functions at DAI require familiarity with the respective international conditions and requirements.

Our main administrative office has always been located in Berlin.

Its function is characterized by the scientific, academic, and research tasks of the DAI. As a central service department, the main administrative office supports the institute's goals and provides the best possible basis for our scholars, scientists, and researchers. In addition to the traditional administrative functions of a Federal institution, the main tasks of the administration consist in financial and personnel management. In close cooperation, the main administration's two commissions with their four dedicated subject groups manage research funding and specified third-party funding as well as the institute's large and diverse human resources.
