At MPI-CBG there are about 100 postdoctoral fellows in about 25 research labs, representing 20 different nationalities. In order to foster collaborations and a sense of community among the postdocs, a Postdoctoral Program has been established. The program includes a yearly postdoc retreat, invited seminar speakers, career workshops and representation and participation in Faculty Meetings. In a survey about the top places to work for postdocs conducted among readers of The Scientist, the MPI-CBG was ranked number one for institutions outside of the United States.
Current CBG postdocs can also find our Postdoc Welcome Packet on the Postdoc Page of the Intranet (requires CBG login and password).

If you would like to do postdoctoral research at MPI-CBG, please apply to individual group leaders. Also check the Jobs section of the MPI-CBG website for any postings of group leaders actively seeking postdocs.
A second entry route is the ELBE Fellows Program at the Center for Systems Biology, Dresden. The program is a cross-disciplinary collaboration between the MPI-CBG and the nearby Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS). To foster collaborations, fellows are usually affiliated with two Principle Investigators working in different disciplines. For details about the application procedure, please visit the program website.
We are also pleased to announce a new Joint Postdoctoral Program between our institute and two institutes in Bangalore, India: the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) and the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem). This is a structured exchange program to encourage scientific collaboration between our institutes. Please visit the program website for more details and information about how to apply.
