Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems
In an open and stimulating working environment we promote accomplished junior scientists, who complete formative years of their careers as student assistants, Ph.D. students, postdocs or research group heads, as e.g. in our International Max Planck Research School.
Team members from many nations are working in an interdisciplinary research environment: chemical engineers, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, control and computer engineers are cooperating closely.
Our Max Planck Institute, located in Magdeburg, is dedicated to all aspects of process systems engineering, chemical, biochemical and energy systems, that are vital to the future of well-being of human society globally. It is our aim to optimize these increasingly complex processes in modern production systems.
A specific strength of our MPI is the combination of systems-theoretical approaches with experimental validation carried out under one roof. We further develop mathematical, computational and control theoretic methods along with the various process applications investigated here.
The Research Center Dynamic Systems: Systems Engineering (CDS) unites research groups from engineering, systems theory, mathematics, medicine and biology. Scientists from five faculties of the Otto von Guericke University and from the Max Planck Institute are involved.
