The Max Planck Society is one of the leading research organizations in Europe. We offer challenging tasks with a high degree of personal responsibility and creative freedom in research laboratories, workshops, libraries and administration.
The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research conducts basic research on plants using a wide variety of methods, in particular molecular genetics, genomics, imaging processes, computational biology and biochemistry. Our goal is the deep and detailed understanding of plant biology in order to im-prove conventional breeding methods and to develop envi-ronmentally friendly crop protection strategies for crops. We focus primarily on the evolution of plants, their genetic blue-print, their development and their interactions with the environment and microorganisms. How does the plant immune system react to plant pests, for example? How does flowering timing depend on seasonally changing day lengths? How does the genetic variability of crop plants influence adaptation to certain environmental influences? Plant biologists search for the molecular basis of natural diversity of forms in the laboratory, on the computer, in the greenhouse or in the natural environment and thus make innovative contributions to plant breeding.
The Max Planck Society strives to increase employment of severely disabled people. Applications from severely disabled people are expressly encouraged.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society wants to increase the proportion of women in areas where they are underrepresented. Women are therefore expressly encouraged to apply.
The Little Pumpkins Parents' Association offers childcare for children under the age of 3 at the MPIPZ.
