Lise Meitner Groups
The new Lise Meitner group leaders 2020 have been appointed
Free scientific development, long-term career security and clear career prospects - these are the cornerstones of the Lise Meitner Excellence Program. In 2018, the MPG launched the four-year pilot phase of the program.
In the first two calls for application nearly 470 candidates took the opportunity to apply for group leadership positions. They underwent a competitive selection process, conducted by a commission made up of national and international experts from various fields. 51 highly qualified applicants were invited to a personal presentation at a symposium. Based on their impressive research accomplishments to date and their demonstrably strong potential, the Max Planck Society offered an appointment to 22 young female researchers.
