Thanks to her many years as a lawyer in the General Administration of the Max Planck Society, Sabine Krabichler has already had frequent contact with the MPP. In the Legal and Compliance Department, she was also responsible for negotiating and drafting cooperation agreements. In this function, she worked together with several project leaders of the MPP.

As Deputy Head of Unit in the Department of Structural Development, Research Law, Research Ethics and Grant Law, she accompanied several major projects. One of them is the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), a project on Earth-based gamma-ray astronomy that started in 2010 and is also located at the MPI for Physics. "In project supervision, the challenge is also to work with people who are strongly committed to a certain field, such as science, and to support them in that, especially when it comes to communicating legal issues to non-lawyers and finding solutions together," says Sabine Krabichler.

Prior to that, she worked as a Subject Area Manager for the construction budget and as an officer in the Research Construction and Real Estate Department. Before joining MPG, Sabine Krabichler worked as an independent lawyer for social law.
