Reconciliation of Work and Family Life
The Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research offers flexible working hours and assistance in finding childcare. In certain circumstances, childcare supplements are also available.
Since the double burden of work and family makes it particularly difficult for women to have a successful career, the Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Foundation supports young female scientists with children. The stipend enables them to ‘buy time’. The stipend recipients can, e.g. hire a home help or finance additional childcare while attending a conference. It is assumed that regular all-day childcare is guaranteed and funded. Female doctoral candidates and postdocs of all nationalities can apply.
