** Max Planck Postdoctoral Fellowship for Excellent Women in Computer Science

* Max-Planck Institute for Informatics, Saarbruecken, Germany *

Every second year the Max Planck Institute for Informatics awards the Lise
Meitner Award Fellowship. This postdoctoral grant supports excellent female
computer scientists in their careers, giving them the opportunity to
develop their scientific ideas without exertion of
influence. It consists of a two-year tax-free research fellowship and business

The Max Planck Society is Germany's largest society for fundamental research
with more than 30 Nobel Prize winners, including Prof. Christiane
Nüsslein-Volhard - one of the few female Nobel Laureates. The research
institutes of the Max Planck Society are nationally and internationally
renowned as Centers of Excellence in foundational research.

The Max Planck Institute (MPI) for lnformatics is devoted to cutting-edge
research in computer science and technology with a focus on algorithms and
their applications in a broad sense. Its research ranges from fundamental
topics (algorithms and complexity, automation of logic) to a variety of
application domains (computer graphics and vision,
geometric computation, program verification, databases and information systems,
and computational biology). The MPI for lnformatics is located on the
campus of Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany.

The Saarland University campus is also home to the Max Planck Institute for
Software Systems, the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence,
the Cluster of Excellence on Multimodal Computing and Interaction, the
Center for Bioinformatics, and the Graduate School of Computer Science.
These institutions cooperate closely and comprise a total of more than 300
researchers in computer science. The institute collaborates with several of
the major research institutions in Europe and the United States and has
high international visibility.

The MPI for lnformatics strives to provide a family-friendly work environment,
with day care opportunities for smaller children and other means of support
for working mothers.
