Science thrives on diversity, openness and tolerance.
The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences works at the interface of mathematics and the natural sciences and brings together scientists from different disciplines, countries of origin and cultures. In this diversity lies the basis for the cutting-edge research that is carried out at our institute. We cultivate an institute culture that fosters the individual abilities of each scientist. For us, freedom in research means equal cooperation between all scientists - regardless of origin, gender, nationality, religion and cultural identity.
We place an emphasis on balancing research and family life and in particular on supporting female scientists during the family and career foundation phase.
