Working at the DPZ

Job and Family

Materialien zu Beruf und Familie

The German Primate Center has greatly improved the conditions for employees with families and was consequently awarded the certificate berufundfamilie by the federal ministry for family affairs in November 2010. This included the obligation to further boost the efforts to provide good conditions for the combination of family and work and also regularly document these efforts. The non-profit organization berufundfamilie gGmbH was founded by the Hertie Stiftung and supports the DPZ actively in our aim to faciliate and improve equal opportunities and the reconciliation of work and family life. The obligation to support this compatibility is a binding component of the management task for all managers at the DPZ.

The German Primate Center is proud to announce the presence of a furnished childcare room since mid-2015 at our institute. The room is equipped for the care of both younger and older children. In addition to a crib, playpen and changing table we also provide you with a selection of toys and books. More information on the childcare room
