Department-Independent Research Groups
Max Planck Research Groups
These groups have been a key part of support of junior scientists for over 50 years at the MPG. The appointment of Group Leader positions is subject to a rigorous, centrally managed selection procedure.
Infrastructure Groups and Service Units
The group leaders of these groups provide support within their areas of expertise for other institute scientists while most of them simultaneously run their own research programmes.
Cooperative Research Groups
To tighten our links with German universities, we maintain joint projects with university research groups. Such cooperation allows an intense exchange of scientific information and expertise.
