About the employer


IAMO is an agro-economic institute with an international focus and is engaged in fundamental and application-oriented research. Its research fields comprise analyses of agricultural policy framework conditions and arrangement options, markets in the agricultural and food sector as well as development of enterprises and structures in rural areas. Farm management and agricultural policy decisions as well as market processes make impacts on man-environment relationships in rural areas. The scientific work of the institute is organized in five research priorities:

Scientific exchange

IAMO directs its research findings to the academic community as well as political and economic decision-makers, international organizations and the public at large. The institute promotes international networking of research and dialog between academia, politics and business. IAMO organizes international conferences, seminars and workshops to enhance scholarly exchange. The annually-held IAMO Forum plays an outstanding role in this context.

Promotion of young researchers

One core task of the institute is qualifying national and international junior researchers with a special focus on promoting scientists from its partner countries. IAMO supports doctoral theses and habilitation projects and assigns subjects for master, diploma and bachelor theses. PhD students at the institute are systematically supported by the IAMO Graduate School and have the opportunity of distinguishing themselves through research residences abroad. The institute also invites outstanding junior scientists to pursue their research interests during visiting fellowships at IAMO.

IAMO activities, inter alia through teaching and under the umbrella of WissenschaftsCampus Halle – Plant-based Bioeconomy (WCH), are closely linked to the Institute for Agricultural and Food Sciences and the Economic Sciences Department of Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg.
