Joint Postdoctoral Programme by Max Planck Society and Weizmann Institute of Science

The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology is continuously looking for promising young scientists at postdoctoral level. In addition to the already established external funding opportunities, the Max Planck Society (MPG) and the Weizmann Institute of Science (WIS) are now cooperating to jointly offer a new postdoctoral program. They give talented researchers an opportunity to help shape the future with boundless scientific exploration. The postdocs can participate in innovative projects, benefit from the expertise of two renowned institutions and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in their respective fields. The German-Israeli programme thus supports scientific cooperation and interdisciplinary research in both countries.

The selected candidates will receive a four-year appointment, which will allow them to fully concentrate on their research projects. Half of the time is spent at the MPG and half at the WIS. This country split allows the postdocs to benefit from the expertise and resources of both institutions and to gain a comprehensive and broad research experience. They will be able to conduct in-depth research and complex experiments, and thus publish relevant contributions in their respective fields. In this way, the programme fosters a global research network that promotes the exchange of ideas, expertise and diverse perspectives.

In addition to a full benefits package, including relocation expenses and various insurances, successful candidates will have access to institutional resources and state-of-the-art research facilities. In addition, the funding covers travel expenses so that postdocs can attend conferences, workshops, and seminars to present their work, exchange ideas with peers, and make valuable professional contacts.

The application deadline is 01 November 2023.
