Minerva Fast Track Programme in the Chemical, Physical, Technical Section
The pilot project, Minerva fast track programme, in the Chemical, Physical, Technical Section (CPTS) of the Max Planck Society offers outstanding female scientists a long-term career perspective after their PhD. Immediately after graduating or after their first postdoc year, the scientists receive funding for a maximum of 2 years. If they receive a positive evaluation after the postdoc phase, they may then apply for an open-topic Max Planck Research Group or Minerva W2 Research Group. Minerva Fast Track positions are awarded upon a proposal from a Scientific Member of the Max Planck Society, who must declare that they are willing to act as a mentor for the candidate. The programme is competitive and positions are awarded under the aegis of the Vice President.
