The Representatives for Staff with Disabilities promote inclusion within the institute, represent the interests of staff with disabilities, and provide help and support where necessary. They represent all staff who are registered disabled or have equivalent status (are “gleichgestellt”).

Job Applications

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce. Applications from people with disabilities are strongly encouraged.

If you would like to disclose a disability when applying to the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, please mention it in your cover letter or CV. Please state the degree of disability (GdB) if you have registered disability status in Germany (there is no need to provide a copy of your disability ID card), or provide equivalent information if you are registered disabled in another country.
