The Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg invites applications for a Postdoc Position within the framework of the Ernst Dieter Gilles Postdoctoral Fellowship.

The Max Planck Institute in Magdeburg offers excellent research opportunities in a stimulating and friendly environment. Grant and travel allowances are dependent on personal profile and research project for a maximum of 24 months.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
