Help advance our company and your career with extraordinary ideas

Research is at the very heart of our company. Many of our 4,000+ products found their origin in one of our research facilities, where creative scientists like you are looking for groundbreaking ideas to solve real-world problems.

Being a specialty chemicals company, our main interest lies in chemistry-related research, with a focus on sustainability. Research stretches from organic and inorganic chemistry to biotechnology, toxicology, nanotechnology, and research on coatings. But we also share our knowledge with universities and research institutions around the world to help foster ground-breaking sustainability research.

As a scientist, you’ll understand the importance of independent thinking and creative freedom. Add an entrepreneurial spirit, desire for responsibility and inspirational interdisciplinary collaboration, and you’re getting close to life at Evonik.

We’ll give you room to try new ideas and learn from mistakes. More practically, we’ve decentralised our research and development labs, so we can research in close proximity to our global customers.

But there are also teams that work more holistically too. Creavis, for example, identifies new markets, applications, products and technologies. Scientists, in other words, who discover new growth areas - and play a key role when you consider a fair share of our revenue is based on products and applications that are fewer than five years old.
