European Patent Organisation recruiting Engineers and Scientists in Munich and The Hague


Munich & The Hague, 20 April 2016

The European Patent Office (EPO) - the second-largest European organisation, with 7,000 staff members and a self-financed annual budget of € 2 billion - is hiring engineers and scientists interested in working as European patent examiners.

EPO patent examiners are drawn from over 30 different European countries. They work at the cutting edge of technology, analysing the latest inventions in all kinds of technical fields in order to protect and promote innovation in Europe. Their daily work combines scientific expertise with analytical research and an eye for the legal aspects of intellectual property.

The EPO offers competitive salaries, an excellent social package, and varied work in a modern international environment. The net (basic) monthly salary* for these vacancies range from EUR 5,150.08 to 7,293.52, depending on experience. In addition, depending on their personal circumstances, EPO staff may be entitled to relocation benefits and various allowances (e.g. household, dependant's, childcare, education, expatriation, installation and rent allowance).
