Open Positions

The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer. It seeks to increase the percentage of female employees in areas where they are underrepresented. Qualified women are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. The Max Planck Society is also committed to employing more individuals with disabilities, and disabled applicants are preferred if qualification is equal. 

Students and scientists interested in working in a specific research laboratory are encouraged to contact the head of the laboratory directly, even if no positions are listed below.

PhD Students

Students from all over the world are invited to apply to our PhD programs:

The Tübingen International PhD Program in the Biological Sciences is the joint graduate program of the Max Planck Institute for Biology and the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory. It aims to provide future research leaders with comprehensive training that promotes scientific excellence, independence and creativity. Applications are welcome anytime. Students interested in joining the Tübingen International PhD Program in the Biological Sciences can apply for an advertised project or contact the member of faculty they would like to work with directly.

The International Max Planck Research School 'From Molecules to Organisms is a joint graduate school operated by the Max Planck Institute for Biology, the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory and the University of Tübingen. The goal of the school is to provide the next generation of scientists with the knowledge and skills to study complex biological processes, which cannot be adequately understood within the limits of single disciplines, in the context of entire organisms.

Applications for the IMPRS will open again in December 2022.
