Welcome to the Student Association of the MPIMG (STA)
The Student Association (STA) represents all students at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics. Our association was established in April 2001 to promote the interests of students at the institute - in terms of scientific work, organisation issues and social events.
If you are new to the institute, please sign up to the STA mailing list to get the latest information about events and other important student matters. Just write an email to the STA with your name, status and affiliation and we add you to the STA mailing list.
You can also join us on Facebook to get the latest information on upcoming events.
Projects and events in the name of the STA are coordinated by the STA chair, who is elected for one year. All students at the MPI for Molecular Genetics are eligible to become part of the STA chair. In order to be eligible for electing the STA Chair, you must be a PhD student or MSc student at this institute.
The current STA chair: Lam-Ha, Jörg, Dennis and Tobias
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any inquiries or if you have new ideas you want to realize.
We act in the interests of the students at the MPI and provide a guidance for new PhD and Master students. Furthermore, we can forward the problems and needs of students by addressing the director, group leaders, the staff association ("Betriebsrat"), and equal opportunity commissioner ("Gleichstellungsbeauftragte") or others.
We also organize several events during the year to provide a platform for scientific and social interactions [more]. To learn more about upcoming events please sign up to the STA mailing list.
