Max Planck Research Group Leader Position

Posted in

We are an internationally leading research institute in the field of pure mathematics with about 700 guest scientists per year. We invite applications of outstanding mathematicians for a position as

Max Planck Research Group Leader

with a 5-year appointment at the level of Associate Professor (W2).

Candidates should have a PhD and several years of postdoctoral research experience in pure mathematics.

The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics cooperates closely with the University of Bonn and is part of the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics. Teaching and advising is possible on a voluntary basis and is strongly encouraged.

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 also seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented, and we explicitly invite women to apply.

Applications should be submitted online by October 31, 2019 at https://application.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/w2.

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.

The selection committee meets three times per year. The deadline for the next application is November 1, 2019. Please note that also the letters of recommendation (at least two) should have been uploaded by the time of the deadline.

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 tenure):

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.

Important Notes

  • Visa: Students from most countries outside the European Union will have to apply for a visa to study in Germany.
