At MPI-PKS we have a highly competitive International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS), with application deadlines twice a year. Check it out!
We offer a friendly and productive environment for postdoctoral scholars, including the opportunity to work on cross-disciplinary projects with more than one research groups at MPI-PKS, and our external collaborators. All postdocs at PKS regularly take part in the diverse workshops program of the institute, where they meet world-leading researchers in a number of related fields on a monthly basis. In addition, we offer support for attending conferences and summer schools.
Prospective postdocs should submit their application directly to the MPI-PKS Visitors Program. The admission committee convenes four times a year.
Young researchers with an outstanding track record are strongly encouraged to apply for the highly competitive Distingushed PKS fellowship. The application deadline varies, but is usually in late November. If you are planning your application in advance and it bears relation to the research in the group, feel free to contact me at mgbukov|at>pks.mpg.de.
We are happy to support the application of competitive young researchers for prestigious independent external fellowships, to be hosted in the group. If you are a strong applicant and have already identified a particular fellowship or funding agency, send your academic CV to mgbukov|at>pks.mpg(dot)de, and provide a brief information about your research proposal and how it aligns with the research of the group.
The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. 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.
