Max Planck Junior Scholars (m/f/d)

The Max Planck Junior Scholars Program offers summer internships to excellent high-school students to gain research experience at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research (Frankfurt am Main), the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics (Frankfurt am Main) or the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research (Bad Nauheim) and to become enthusiastic for a future career in the natural sciences. Students currently enrolled in grade 10 or 11 are eligible to apply. Applicants from abroad need to be 18+ years.

Our program includes a summer internship in a host laboratory (minimum of two weeks) in the period from 26.06. - 01.09.2023, which can be followed by weekly visits to the lab (1-2 hours each) during the new school year. During this time the scholar will work together with a mentor (either a research assistant, graduate student or a postdoctoral fellow) on a scientific project which can be presented during a lab meeting or as a report. Please note, those candidates who have maximal availability will have a better chance in being selected.

We look forward to receiving your complete and conclusive application documents by March 31st 2023 on our application platform. You can expect to hear back from us in April. Please note, that there is only a limited number of slots available. For more details about the program, please visit the Max Planck Junior Scholars homepage.
