Study and Career

The working environment at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy is open, stimulating – and international. And there are many opportunities to join us: If you are an undergraduate student, you might consider an internship at MPIA.

If you are looking for a place to write your Masters Thesis or to do research for your PhD, you will find more information under Studying at MPIA.

MPIA also offers opportunity for post-doctoral positions. Details can be found on our Postdocs page; open job offers for these or for staff positions can be found under Open Staff/Postdoc positions.

We also offer apprenticeships both in our precision engineering department and in our administration. However, since those require a suitable command of the German language, details can only be found in the German part of our website under Ausbildungsplätze.
