Application for the Guest Program and for PostDoc positions

To apply for a stay at the MPIM, please fill out the online application form and provide all required documents. If you have any questions, please contact us at application@mpim-bonn.mpg.de.

There is only one form, both for the Guest program as well as for Postdoc positions. We first list common features, small distinctions follow afterwards.

The selection committee meets three times per year. The deadline for the next application is January 11, 2019. All required documents need to be uploaded by then, including two recommendation letters.

You need a PhD prior to the starting date of your intended visit, and your research interests should be represented in Bonn.

Important practical issues:

You need at least 2 letters of recommendation but it is possible to have more letters. It is very important to input current email addresses for the recommendation letter writers, as once you upload your application (and only then!) a request for writing a recommendation letter is sent automatically to these addresses. A timely uploading of your application is therefore essential for the letter writers to have sufficient time to finish their work before our deadline.

Guest Program Applications (for mathematicians with a job elsewhere):

It is best to apply about one year before the intended starting date of your stay. During June-July we are usually overbooked and hence have to be very strict with invitations for that period. The application period can be up to one year.

Postdoc Applications:

Please try to apply in our November or January meetings if you plan to come in the fall after you received your PhD. In this case you can apply for up to two years and we will assign a Mentor to you, who will introduce you to their research group in Bonn.
