Max Planck Research Groups
The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Wissenschaften e.V. (MPG) is an independent,
non-profit research organization, whose goal is to promote top quality research at its institutes.
The 83 research institutes of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft conduct basic research in Biology and Medicine;
Chemistry, Physics and Technology; and the Humanities, Social Sciences, Cognitive (Neuro)Sciences, and Law.
The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft is particularly interested in addressing innovative and interdisciplinary research areas.
The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft seeks to increase the number of women in those areas in which they are underrepresented and
therefore explicitly welcomes applications from women in all disciplines. We are also committed to employing individuals
with disabilities and expressly encourage them to apply.
The successful candidates will be offered a Max Planck Research Group for a period of five years at a Max Planck Institute
of their own choice. This includes a W2 position (equivalent to an assistant or untenured associate professor level) and
additional resources for research positions, as well as a budget to realize the project. The total funding for a Max Planck Research
Group is competitive with top start-up packages in international career development programs. The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft aims to
support emerging scholars early in their career path.
The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft and the Technische Universität München (TUM) continue their joint MPG/TUM career program.
It provides an add-on opportunity for newly hired Max Planck Research Group Leaders: Once you are accepted for a Max
Planck Research Group Leader position, you can also apply for a position as a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at the
TUM. Acceptance into this joint program includes the right to award doctoral degrees and further provides career options
to Associate and Full Professor status according to the TUM Faculty
Tenure Track system (see www.tum.de/tenure-track and
www.tum.de/tenure-track-mpg). This offer is independent of your chosen
Max Planck Institute.
Tenure track options may also be possible with other universities on an individual basis.
Your application should include a CV, a list of publications, copies of three publications, a one-page summary of scientific achievements,
two letters of recommendation, and a research plan. For detailed information about the advertised positions and the application please see
