their own choice, including a W2 position (equiv. associate professor)
and a start-up package. More than two thirds of all Max Planck Research
Group Leaders have subsequently obtained faculty positions at academic
institutions in Germany and abroad.

The Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS:
