Highly motivated early career researchers of any nationality with an excellent scientific background, a strong interest in performing interdisciplinary projects and with a deep commitment to fundamental research are invited to apply. Applicants should hold an MSc or equivalent degree in chemistry, physics or a related area at the point of enrolment.

Our offer

All students accepted to this 3-year-doctoral-program will receive substantial financial support and will join one of our research groups. Each student receives supervision and mentoring and is guided in her/his research work by a doctoral/PhD advisory committee. The student’s laboratory work is supplemented by high-grade scientific courses. The working language is English.

Your application

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
