Nomination sought for a position of Director in theoretical physics at the Max Planck Institute for Physics

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP), the Werner Heisenberg Institute, expects to have an opening for a director and scientific member of the Max Planck Society (MPG) in the broad fields of theoretical and mathematical physics. We are looking for internationally outstanding researchers with a scientific focus on areas such as quantum field theory, particle physics, cosmology, quantum gravity, and string theory.
Max Planck Directors are international leaders in their respective field, pursue an ambitious research agenda within their groups, and lead the institute jointly with their director colleagues. Directors enjoy academic freedom and benefit from a diverse, international, excellent research environment, outstanding infrastructure, and long-term scientific funding.

The MPG seeks to achieve gender equality and diversity and is particularly interested in appointing excellent female scientists.
