Lise Meitner Research Groups (deadline April 28, 2021)

The Max Planck Society (Max-Planck-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Wissenschaften e.V.) invites outstanding applicants to apply for permanent tenure-track Lise Meitner Research Group Leader positions. The appointments will be made in partnership with relevant Max Planck Institutes according to the applicants’ research topics. With the Lise Meitner Excellence Program, the Max Planck Society expressly aims to attract and promote the careers of outstanding female scientists who are at an early stage of their scientific career and have a documented track record of independent and innovative research.

MPGThe successful candidates will be offered a Lise Meitner Research Group at a relevant Max Planck Institute for an initial period of five years. The funding package includes a W2 tenure-track position (equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor), resources for scientific staff and running costs as well as a highly competitive start-up package. Upon successful tenure evaluation, no later than five years after the start of the group, the W2 position and the financial support will be continued. Further career development is possible including guaranteed consideration for a Max Planck Director position within the Max Planck Society.

deadline: April 28, 2021
