Purpose of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings
The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is a non-profit organization based in Lindau, Germany. Its focus is designing and executing the annual Lindau Meetings, outstanding international science conventions that yearly attract about 40 Nobel Laureates and 600 of the most promising young scientists from nearly 100 countries. Since its foundation in 1951, the Lindau Meetings have developed into a unique scientific forum for exchange between different generations, cultures, and scientific disciplines. The subject matter of the meetings alternates between Physics, Chemistry or Physiology & Medicine. The 2024 Lindau Meeting will be dedicated to Physics. The selection of the participating young scientists is carried out in cooperation with academies, universities, research institutes, and science foundations around the globe.
You will be part of a small and highly motivated team responsible for supporting early-career researchers, as well as liaising with Lindau’s academic partner institutions and scientific reviewers.

During the Lindau Meeting, you will also support early-career researchers in face-to-face contact and will be involved in the preparation and implementation of scientific and social events. All communication will be in English.
