Max Planck Research Groups

Working Opportunity for Post Docs

The postdoc fellowships are announced internationally; the senior research scientists are directly appointed by the President of the Max Planck Society. All senior research scientists receive their own research funds, which enable them to pursue their projects independently. The term of their contracts is five years and can be extended.

Currently there are two Max Planck Reseach Groups, a Heisenberg Group, and an Otto Hahn Research Group at the MPI for Human Development:

If you have already received your doctorate degree, there is the opportunity of working in a Max Planck Research Group. Or, if your qualifications are first-rate: you could head a Max Planck Research Group at one of the institutes.
