The Helmholtz Institute for One Health (HIOH) aims to address the threats posed by the emergence of novel pathogens and by the modification of known pathogens, including their antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In doing so, HIOH takes a comprehensive approach to research, including integrated surveillance of human and animal health, as well as environmental and climatic factors. The institute is closely interlinked with its local founding partners: the University of Greifswald, the University Medical Center Greifswald and the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut.

The HIOH is a new institute with an exceptionally important research focus. As an employer we offer excellent working conditions, ranging from modern laboratories and a remarkable One Health infrastructure in Greifswald to a friendly, open-minded team.
The One Health concept in research and teaching enables new generations of researchers to incorporate the integrative One Health idea into problem solutions from the very start of their career. PhD students as well as undergraduates have the opportunity to learn state-of-the-art methods and apply them to unique data sets to answer both basic and translational research questions.
Located in the north-east of Germany at the Baltic Sea, Greifswald, a university town with long Hanseatic tradition, is a young city with maritime flair, full of culture, culinary delights and nightlife. Thanks to short distances, life in Greifswald can easily be organized on foot or by bicycle. The beautiful city center with Hanseatic merchant houses, Brick Gothics as well as a variety of cafés, restaurants and pubs, the museum harbor and the fishing village of Wieck invite you to linger, and Germany's most popular islands of Rügen and Usedom are also within easy reach.
