Are you interested in technical systems? Do you enjoy making things on your own? Do you picture yourself working with phyisicsts on new experiments?
If so, you should think about training at the MPP. We train apprentices in two professions:
- electronics technicians for devices and systems
- industrial mechanics (construction of precision equipment)
The start for the next application round for the year 2021 will be published on this site.

Professional training at the Max Planck Institute for Physics is a success story: Since 1996, we have trained more than 100 apprentices – with only one exception, all have successfully completed their certification.
Companies highly value job candidates with MPP training. Most who complete the program quickly find a position in industry or research.
We are especially proud that we can also offer young women interesting career prospects: Nearly 20 percent of MPP trainees are female.
We do fundamental research in particle and astroparticle physics. Our research has the goal of better understanding how the universe is constructed.
Our scientists investigate fascinating research topics: What is dark matter? Why is there no more antimatter in the cosmos? What happens when stars explode?
To get answers to these questions, our physicists work together with colleagues from all over the world at large-scale experimental facilities such as telescopes or particle accelerators.
For these experiments, our technical departments develop and build components and instruments. As a trainee, you will collaborate on these projects and thus make an important contribution to our scientific successes.
