Looking for accommodation from 13th Feb. (Berlin)

Hello fellow expats :)
I just got a job at the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (in Steglitz, next to the Botanischer Garten). They needed someone as soon as possible, so I will arrive in Berlin on 13th February (my contract begins on 15th)! I am looking for a temporary accommodation for the first Protected content so that I can take my time to visit flats and get a more permanent residence after. Do you have any suggestion on where I could start looking? I was thinking maybe airbnb in the beginning? Since it's my first time in Berlin, I have no clue about the best districts. I also do not speak a word of German yet (but I will learn). I believe the ideal location would be somewhere between the center and my work place like Schoneberg or Kreuzberg? Do you have any tips? If you have suggestions for a more permanent accommodation, I will be very grateful as well.
Thank you very much!
