Information for students and graduates

The support of young scientists is an important goal at the Max Planck Campus Tübingen. Our internationally leading PhD programs aim to train the future generation of first-class scientists. The programs offer you the opportunity to work at the top of your field and are an excellent platform for a successful career in science.

Here at the Max Planck Campus Tübingen, we build on a wealth of experience when it comes to supervising and training doctoral students. We cooperate with the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, which officially awards the doctoral degree.

Our approximately 200 international doctoral students benefit from a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment as well as excellent scientific facilities. They all belong to one of our PhD programs at the International Max Planck Research Schools.
