International Office

Each year a large number of graduate students, postdocs and senior scientists from all parts of the world start at our institute. Our International Office (IO) provides guests and new employees the necessary support and all information needed to enable a smooth transit into a successful and exciting work period at the institute.

A good start for non-German students and staff members is the guide ‚Living and working in Germany‘ of the Max Planck Society, which is intended to help one to get settled and feel at home in Germany, and to handle the daily business of living and working here. more
