- Physics for everyone
- Studying and working
- About us
11 February is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (IDWGS).
On this day, women in scientific professions are celebrated worldwide - and we want to show girls and young women how versatile and exciting research can be.
Studying physics is the key to a special world: At the Max Planck Institute for Physics, we explore particles and the mysterious processes in the universe. Other disciplines deal with quantum optics, nuclear fusion, solid state physics or biophysics, to name just a few examples.
With a physics degree, however, you can pursue a career in more than just research. Our graduates are also sought after employees in the private sector and work in interesting professions with good development opportunities.
Our physicists will be happy to answer your questions: You can come to the MPP, talk to them on the phone or chat in a video call.
Just get in touch at IDWGS@mpp.mpg.de.
Please indicate your preferred dates for a visit, a phone or video conversation and your age.
Our female scientists do research on many topics in particle physics: structure of the universe, dark matter, neutrino physics, quantum field theory, string theory, and also astrophysics. If you have questions about a particular research topic, let us know!
