As third-party funding manager, you provide information and advice to Institute researchers on current funding opportunities, guide them through the application process, and support them in implementing the funded projects. You also coordinate and document the Institute’s entire third-party funding activities and are involved in the financial accounting, auditing, and financial reporting of these projects. Besides these activities as third-party funding manager, it is also envisaged that you assume the tasks of Deputy Chief Research Coordinator.
A PhD in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences is desirable. You should have i) experience in the management of scientific projects, ii) a sound knowledge of the German, European and US research funding landscape, of the process of acquisition of third-party funds, and of budget planning and staff management, iii) an interest in deepening and expanding relevant knowledge and skills.

The position is full time (39 hours/week), to start as soon as possible. The contract is initially limited to 2 years, with the possibility of tenure.

The Institute has an excellent work environment and offers family-friendly work arrangements (flexible working hours, teleworking, and guaranteed day-care centers for children), occupational health promotion, and opportunities for continuous further training.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and thus explicitly encourages women to apply.
