How to join us

For publishing professionals, career changers and emerging talent

How to join us at De Gruyter

Do you already work at a scholarly publisher? Are you familiar with publishing content and structures? Or are you coming to us from a completely different sector? Are you, for example, a chemist, physician or a software developer? Do you find the world of publishing attractive and exciting? In both cases, you’ve come to the right place because we are always on the lookout for talent with experience – also from other sectors.

Or are you studying, or have you just finished university? Yes? We can support you as an emerging talent as well.

Traineeships, clerkships and internships

Even if you have just finished university – or even if you are still studying – we can help develop your talent in an atmosphere that most highly values quality. We offer three different possibilities:

Our traineeship program can train you as an Editor – for one whole year. You will learn the basics with respect to workflow and technical knowledge and emerge at the end of the year as a first-class manager for publishing processes. You also have the opportunity to gain interdisciplinary insight into other activities through short internships and excursions.

Are you a law student and looking for an exciting place for your clerkship? If you choose us, you will be involved in activities beyond classical legal work and have the chance to proactively work on the creation of specialist legal reference works. Our list of vacancies provides information on what is currently available.

Even if you are still studying, we might have something for you. Your theoretical expertise can be put to good use during an internship for three to six months. Our interns also participate in all activities geared towards our trainees.
