How did you learn about the UFZ?

What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig is a beautiful city, large enough to never be bored and small enough to reach everything by foot.

How do you like it at the UFZ / in HIGRADE?

I was very lucky to get the position at the UFZ, it provides a very good scientific and social working environment. I made my apprenticeship here and it feels like coming home.
