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 
business expenses.


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) 
more directly.


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.
