FaMI training

From 2003 to 2019, we trained ten highly motivated young people to become assistants in media and information services, specializing in library services (German short form: FaMI), and prepared them for their future careers.

From the very beginning, the trainees were involved in all typical library workflows, from researching available print and digital media, ordering, cataloguing and invoice processing to information brokerage and public relations.

Already in their first year of training, our trainees gave individual introductions and advice to our institute’s scientists in English and were involved in the organization of weekly changing events and exhibitions for and with the scientists.
Furthermore, the trainees were encouraged to acquire additional qualifications during their time with us. These could be, for example, computer or language skills, depending on their respective preferences.

Since our team is currently fully staffed, please do not send applications for a training position. The next vacant training position will be announced here.


Internship for students

We provide students of library sciences with the opportunity to gain a broad insight into the work of a specialized scientific library for a period of at least three months. We offer the entire spectrum of modern librarianship, from classical library services to innovative ones, from everyday public relations to the programming for new services.

If you are looking for an internship in an international environment, in a small team and with diverse tasks and IT challenges, please send your application to:

Our common goal

Every employee - a trainee as well as a librarian - is doing their job not just because they were told to do it, but because they identifiy with a common goal - to guarantee one of the world's best mathematical libraries.

For an educator, training means to develop professionally, together with the trainees, to actively try and apply new techniques in everyday library life, to inspire enthusiasm for the manifold possibilities of our profession, to make your library more innovative and user-friendly with the commitment of your trainees.
