The TU Dortmund University has been training chemical laboratory assistants for more than 40 years. At present, we offer about ten applicants each year the opportunity to learn this very versatile profession.
After several months of joint basic training in the training laboratory, the trainees work in the research laboratories of various departments. In a team with young scientists they try to produce new substances or find better synthesis routes for known substances – a varied and guaranteed interesting job!
The training usually starts in August or September.
