Max Planck Postdoctoral Fellowship for Excellent Women in Computer Science
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
Fellows will be chosen based on the strength of their academic
background and research credentials. Applications should include a CV,
cover letter, publication list, short research plan (one page is
enough), and two references. This grant is according to the fellowship
rules of the Max Planck Society; it usually amounts to 3,000 Euro/month
and is completed by compensation for business expenses of 10,000
Euro/year. The deadline for the application is 01.12.2017.
For more information, please contact meitner-award at mpi-inf.mpg.de. If
you are interested in Department 2: Computer Vision and Multimodal
Computing, you can also contact Dr. Qianru Sun (qsun at mpi-inf.mpg.de)
About the Max Planck Institute for Informatics
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 Center for IT-Security, Privacy, and Accountabilty
(CISPA), 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.
