Training at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development
Whether in the graphics department, the IT department, or the cafeteria—we have been training bright young people in various occupations at the Institute since 1986. The trainees are able to work and study under optimal conditions and are often among the best graduates of their year. As an institute that researches human development and learning processes, we attach great importance to being involved in occupational training and getting young people’s careers off to a great start.
