Together with our students, the Fellows of the Max Planck Schools form the foundation of every School. Fellows mentor our young researchers and accompany them throughout their PhD studies.
To become a Fellow of a Max Planck School, outstanding researchers at German institutions can apply to a national call, are selected in a competitive review, and appointed by the steering committee for a definite timeframe. After completion of their Fellow term and successful review, Fellows can be reappointed for a second and third term.
The repeated competitive selection procedure ensures that the Fellows of the Max Planck Schools are continuously representing the brightest minds in their fields within Germany and students have access to the most innovative mentors and best teachers in their fields.
The Max Planck Schools inform on their individual pages about currently appointed Fellows.
