KEPOS is your partner for scientific and technical research facilities, when it comes to career development for junior scientists. We understand scientists seeking employment, we speak their language and at the same time, we know the demands they will be confronted with outside academic research.


KEPOS staff members and associates consider themselves as bridge builders. It is our utmost concern to bring people together. As professional networkers we seek constant exchange with HR managers in academic research, industry and in the non-profit sector, and we open these contacts to our clients.

Enabling rather than counseling it is the objective of our work to ensure that our clients can benefit sustainably from their experience with us. We have much knowledge, but we do not claim to provide the right answers to all questions. Sometimes we simply ask the right questions to give people new insights. Knowledge, empathy and communication skills in different contexts make us experts in this field of staff development.
