Max Planck Research Groups for female scientists
There will be a new program in the Max Planck Society, starting in Spring 2018: As part of the Lise Meitner Excellence Program, up to ten Max Planck Research Groups will be announced each year for exceptionally qualified female scientists. Following a multi-stage competitive selection process, fully equipped Max Planck Research Groups will be established in close collaboration with interested Max Planck Institutes. These will be centrally funded for their entire duration (5 plus 2 years extension).
It is guaranteed that every scientist, who attends the Lise Meitner Excellence Program, can go a transparent and predictable career path through a tenure track offer to a permanent W2 position. In addition, for planning security, after the end of the group phase, there is a permanent TVöD position (E15) as fall back. Both the permanent W2 Group and the permanent TVöD post will be funded centrally at the end of the group phase. In addition, the institutes and sections can independently support the career paths of the excellent female scientists in the direction of W3 vocation. Because of the strict selection at least at the level of the open-topic Max Planck research groups, the internal pool of director-able women is also increased. The implementation details will be drawn up promptly by a "Lise Meitner Structural Commission" (Section Chairpersons, Vice-Presidents' personal assistants and a colleague from the General Administration under the direction of Vice-President Friederici).
