The Max-Planck-Institute of Biophysics has committed itself to promote excellence, creativity and passion of its employees regardless of gender, nationality, religion, disability, age, cultural origin and sexual identity. A prerequisite of successful collaboration at our Institute is a common understanding of collegial interaction and a space that is free of any discrimination. Our Institute strives for an open institutional culture to which everyone can contribute to the best of their abilities.
Our equal opportunities work focusses on the compatibility of family and research as well as a mentoring of young researchers to foster their individual career paths. Some measures are offered via the Max Planck Society while some are organised locally via the Institute.
