Detailed information as well as application instructions can be found in the official announcement: https://www.mpg.de/career/max-planck-research-groups/applications. With this call for applications, MPG und Technische Universität München (TUM) combine their respective career opportunities to a highly attractive career option for international top talents: Successful candidates will be offered a Max Planck Research Group Leader position accompanied by the excellent research conditions in a Max Planck Institute of their choice, and additionally - in case of interest - also the opportunity to apply for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at TUM with doctorate granting rights and career options via Associate to Full Professor according to the TUM Faculty Tenure Track system. This offer is independent of the location of a chosen Max Planck Institute. The successful candidates will be offered a Max Planck Research Group for a period of five years.

The cumulative amount of funding is competitive with top class start-up packages of international career development programs. Start of funding is in 2017, with a lead time of up to three months. Excellent research and teaching is irrespective of gender. However, the MPG and the TUM still lack female scientists and hereby explicitly welcome applications from highly skilled women in all disciplines. The MPG and the TUM Munich Dual Career Office provide support for dual career couples and families. The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft and the Technische Universität München are committed to equal opportunities and to employing individuals with disabilities, and explicitly encourage them to apply.
