Growing into a leadership role
The Max Planck Institutes make their own decisions on appointments to Research Group Leader positions.
The Max Planck Institutes call for applications for appointment to these positions – sometimes also internationally – using their own procedures and specify a research field. No uniform application deadlines apply to these positions. The personnel budget and financial resources vary depending upon the Max Planck Institute.
Making an application
If you are interested in making an application, contact the Max Planck Institute of your choice. Candidates are appointed by the Managing Director after successful completion of the application procedure. They generally receive a fixed-term employment contract based on the Collective Wage Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD).
