The department of Biological Physics invites applications for Ph.D., postdoctoral, and guest scientist positions. We seek strong candidates with background in theoretical and/or computational physics and serious interest in the study of biological systems. Candidates for Ph.D. student positions should directly contact the director or one of the group leaders. Postdoctoral positions are administered through the institute's Visitors' Program. Candidates are encouraged to contact us, but applications should be submitted according to the Visitors' Program Instructions.

The Max-Planck-Institute aims to increase the number of women in scientific positions. Female candidates are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. In case of equal qualifications, candidates with disabilities will take precedence.


The Center for Systems Biology Dresden (CSBD) offers postdoctoral positions via the ELBE postdoctoral program.
