Links to scientific organizations in Germany and abroad will help you if you are looking for a job or need information.

The Association Bernard Gregory (AGB) is a French non-profit organization that supports doctoral students and graduates from all disciplines in their professional goals. This includes workshops and courses, job offers from industry and academia and a wide range of information about the doctoral thesis and entry into the profession.
The Franco-German Service Agency ABG-DFH, a joint project of the Franco-German University (DFH) and the Bernard Gregory Association, which was founded to support the professional integration of doctoral candidates in Germany and France, is also helpful for francophile chemists and support.
The British Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) actually only makes its extensive career service available to members. However, since the GDCh and the RSC have concluded an agreement on cooperation in different areas, GDCh members looking for a job in the UK can also benefit from it. Please contact the RSC with reference to the Bilateral Cooperation Agreement!
There is also a corresponding agreement (International Associate Membership) with the Koninklijke Nederlandse Chemische Vereniging (KNCV), the Dutch fellow society company, which enables GDCh members to use the agency service of the KNCV.
The Société Française de Chimie (SFC) also supports its job-seeking members with a "Bourse de l'emploi" and the GDCh has also signed an agreement (International Associate Membership) with the SFC. GDCh members can be included in an applicant database published on the Internet. The job offers ("offres d´emploi") for doctoral students, postdocs and from the chemical industry are accessible to everyone.
Unfortunately, the American Chemical Society makes its extensive job seeker assistance available only to its members. However, it operates a job database that is not limited to members.
Engineering career is the name of the service provided by the Association of German Engineers (VDI) for all aspects of Career entry. Primarily intended for engineers, of course, but chemists will also find a lot of interesting information here. Why much more information is outsourced to the Ingenieur.de site is not clear to the external visitor. But the click there is still worthwhile, because hidden under "Work and Profession" you will find the legendary career advice from Heiko Mell from the VDI-Nachrichten and this reading is worthwhile for every scientist who is in professional life.
16 research centers have joined forces to form the Hermann von Helmholtz Association. Most of them advertise their vacancies in all areas of the natural sciences on the Internet.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft operates a total of 47 Fraunhofer Institutes in Germany, which deal with applied research from all areas of natural sciences and technology. Vacancies are advertised centrally.
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg with branches in Hamburg, Grenoble (France) and Hinxton (Great Britain) also publishes its vacancies, mostly for biologists, biochemists, structural chemists and computer scientists, on the Internet.
The vacancies at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, based in Geneva, Switzerland, are also published on the web.
The International Atomic Energy Agency-IAEA in Vienna was founded by the United Nations and works for the peaceful use of nuclear energy and for preventing the military use of nuclear energy. Since the proportion of German employees has decreased in recent years and the IAEA attaches importance to an international mix, applications from German candidates are welcome. The current vacancies can be found on the above pages.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), based in Helsinki, manages the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances in order to ensure a uniform procedure within the European Union (keyword "Reach"). ECHA has bundled its job vacancies under the heading "Work with us".
The vacancies at the European Patent Office can be found here.
