PhD branding exercise launched

Three consortiums have been selected to run Max Planck Schools, a pilot programme that aims to entice more top early-career scientists to do their PhDs in Germany.

The pilot programme, which is targeted at early-career scientists in Germany and around the world, will begin in 2018 and last for five years, the Max Planck Society announced on 4 September. Each of the three schools, selected after a competitive application process, will bundle nationwide excellence in a particular research field in order to gain greater global recognition.

The schools are: the Max Planck School of Cognition, the Max Planck School of Photonics and the Max Planck School on Physics, Chemistry and Construction of Life. A total of 21 universities and 31 research institutions are involved. All qualifications will be awarded by the participating universities.
