Equal Opportunity

Equal Opportunity

The MPI of Biochemistry relies on exceptional scientific talent, passion and creativity. Our staff members hail from different regions and cultures around the world.

A precondition of successful collaboration at the Institute is an open sense of interaction and common ground that is free of discrimination.

We support and nurture our staff regardless of their sex, nationality, religion, disability, age, cultural heritage or sexual identity.

We do so because an open institutional culture in which everyone can contribute to the best of their abilities is a crucial requirement of the cutting-edge research carried out at our Institute.


The MPG offers the following programmes to ensure equal opportunities for its staff members:

  • Childcare places in collaboration with nurseries
  • An agreement with a family services company that helps our staff to arrange care for family members
  • A dual-career service
  • Special funding programmes for female scientists
