Equal Opportunity

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology supports outstanding scientific talent, creativity and passion. All employees, from all different backgrounds, are welcome.

An open and non-discriminatory environment is a definite prerequisite for successful cooperation. We focus on the compatibility of research and family in our work towards ensuring equal opportunity.

Regardless, the Max Planck Society and each of its institutes promote employees regardless of gender, nationality, religion, disability, age, cultural origin and sexual identity. The diversity of our employees is the basis for conducting outstanding research at the Max Planck institutes.
