Tenure track options may also be possible with other universities on an individual basis. In addition, the MPG also considers outstanding Max Planck Research Group Leaders when hiring new directors.

The successful candidates will be offered a Max Planck Research Group for a period of five years at a participating Max Planck Institute of their own choice.

Furthermore, the MPG and the TUM strives for gender and diversity equality. Therefore, applications from all genders are welcome.
