Exciting current research projects

Bachelor’s and Master’s students are an integral part of our research teams and are included in exciting ongoing research projects. Here you will learn how to apply new methods and techniques as well as how to plan projects and find solutions for scientific problems.


Each department and research group decides individually about filling open research positions for students. Find out more about our research activities and available research positions by exploring our website.

Please send a complete application as soon as possible to the respective research group (cover letter, CV in tabular form, certificates, and if applicable, letters of recommendation). If you would like to send your application by e-mail, please create a single PDF file with all application documents. Your application should include your desired time period for the research position. It is particularly important that you explain why you are especially interested in a specific research group.

Good luck for your application!

The Max Planck School Matter of Life

Apply here!

The doctoral program at the Max Planck School Matter to Life will offer highly talented and motivated students a superior training in the fundamentals, methods and approaches in the rapidly developing field of Matter to Life. "What, exactly, is life?", and "Can life-like processes, functions and objects be quantitatively simulated, predicted and created in the laboratory?" are the overarching questions addressed in the curriculum and research training.

27 universities and more than 30 institutes of non-university research institutions from the Fraunhofer Society and the Max Planck Society are participating in the initiative "Max Planck Schools", including the MPI of Molecular Physiologist with the directors Prof. Dr. Philippe Bastiaens and Prof. Dr. Andrea Musacchio.
