The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MPI MiS) invites applications for several

Postdoctoral Research Positions.

MPI MiS is a research institute located in Leipzig, Germany. Our research advances outward looking mathematics. We develop mathematical methods for applications, and we translate problems from the sciences, humanities and engineering into mathematical challenges. We are committed to innovative fundamental research, and to transferring concepts and structures from mathematics into other academic fields.

In our interdisciplinary approach we tackle mathematical and scientific questions by means of scientific exchange, collaboration, and cooperation with researchers from all over the world. We hire in the classical areas of mathematics like:

  • Algebra
  • Calculus of Variations
  • Discrete Structures
  • Geometry / Topology
  • Partial Differential Equations
  • Mathematical Statistics
  • Stochastics

but also in fields exploring the interaction of mathematics and the sciences like:

  • Algebraic Statistics
  • Combinatorics and Applied Algebraic Geometry
  • Computer Algebra
  • Data Science / Mathematics of Data
  • Discrete (Random) Geometry
  • Higher Structures and Category Theory
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Information Theory and Network Analysis
  • Materials Science 
  • Mathematical Biology 
  • Mathematical Machine Learning / Theory of Deep Learning
  • Mathematical and Theoretical Physics
  • Stochastic Partial Differential Equations

Successful candidates should be willing to closely collaborate with at least one of the postdoctoral mentors of the institute. A list of the postdoctoral mentors can be found on the website of the institute

Our offer:

  • PostDoc position for 1-3 years.
  • No teaching duties, but the possibility to teach an advanced course in our international graduate school.
  • We provide a scientific environment where you are encouraged to explore new scientific directions and where you will find many partners with whom you can discuss a wide range of scientific ideas.
  • Deadline December 01 (starting date flexible).


  • Please visit our online application form.
  • During the application process, you will be asked for which kind of position you apply. Please choose "Postdoc Call 2023".
  • The Max-Planck society strives for gender diversity. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. The Max-Planck society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
