    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics full-time

    Pros

    - State of the art research facilities
    - Extremely bright and talented scientists (for the most part)
    - An illustrious selection of world-class seminar speakers
    - Beautiful city, great for people who like nature, forests, hiking, skiing.

    Cons

    - Recurring issues with scientific misconduct
    - Mobbing and bullying of grad students by senior faculty will not be investigated. If reported, the messenger might be punished
    - Depending on PI, extremely long working hours and weekend work. This point is debatable, since most scientists love their jobs and don't mind the overtime.
    - Barely any industry networking events and skill building workshop to prepare people for industry. The sole purpose of this institute is to build future leaders in academia.

    Advice to Management

    - Comply to work law and the official MPG standards for ethical research.
    - Let go PIs, who bully their staff.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics.

    Interview

    You apply for the fellowship online. There are two rounds of selection each year (January and July). Around 15-20 people are invited to the institute for interviews for each round and the travel expenses are reimbursed. MPI arranges and pays for the accommodation. First day the group leaders present their lab and the available projects. Next day the applicants present their previous work.

    Interview Questions

    • What other technique could you use for the same experimental design? (upon presenting a former experimental result)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    30-60 min one-to-one interviews with the three group leaders of your choice.
