Equal opportunities at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology
The Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology supports excellent research in an open and non-discriminatory environment. The diversity of nationalities, cultures and gender harbours an invaluable potential of talent, wealth of ideas and creativity. We are therefore delighted to be working together with employees from all over the world in order to generate new scientific insights. It is our aim to create an attractive framework for this, while at the same time fostering the specific talent of each individual in the best way possible.
To create these conditions we support
- the reconciliation of work and family life, which is a great challenge for natural scientists, due to working conditions.
- the individual career objectives of our employees
Even now, the institute can point to a high proportion of women in all areas of science, especially in leadership positions, as can be seen in the diagram.
