The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics is an equal opportunity employer, and is committed to providing employment opportunities to all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.
The underrepresentation of women and minorities in the natural sciences is a well-documented problem. We are acutely aware of these circumstances and are fully committed to providing equal opportunities to all applicants, students, and postdocs. Throughout the recruitment and interviewing process, we work closely with the Equal Opportunity Officers at all participating institutions. We regularly organize mandatory workshops for raising awareness of gender issues, e.g., on how to avoid implicit bias, and specialized workshops for female scientists on, for instance, presentation and communication skills in gender mixed environments.
For the AEI's equal opportunity practices, please also consult the institute's equal opportunity website.
