June 24, 2022: Career Day at the MPP

The Career Day at the Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) will take place “live” at the institute again. Young physicists can find out about career options in 12 companies on June 24, 2022. A maximum of 120 people can register for the event. There are still a few free places.

Many physicists are drawn to the private sector after completing their (doctoral) studies. At the Career Day, they can get to know individual companies and their fields of work. "For us, it is important to learn about different career paths as early as possible so that we can make a good decision for our professional careers," says Daniel Siegmann, a doctoral student at MPP and one of the organizers of Career Day. "In addition, Career Day offers an excellent opportunity to get in direct contact with interesting companies."

The event is aimed at young scientists from the Max Planck Institutes of Physics (MPP), Astrophysics, Extraterrestrial Physics and Quantum Optics, as well as Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and Technische Universität München. Participants can expect a broad portfolio of companies from the IT, technology, finance and consulting sectors. But research will not be neglected either: Dr. Raimund Strauss from the Chair of Experimental Physics and Astroparticle Physics at TUM, formerly at MPP, will report on his scientific career. 

As in previous years, the 5th edition of this event is organized by the PhD student committee at the MPP. They are pleased to have AIRBUS, Zeiss, Bosch, Brainlab, and zeb as sponsors. In addition, the team also welcomes Additive, Allianz, Boston Consulting Group, Goldman Sachs, the European Patent Office, OHB, and vyoma.
