Certified committment for reconciliation of family and career

In order to achieve long-term professional success, a good work-life-balance must be maintained. Our family-friendly employment policy has received a generally recognized seal of quality. In 2006, the Max Planck Society was the first German research institution to receive the certificate of the non-profit organisation “berufundfamilie” (“career and family”).

Child Care

The Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung emphasizes the promotion of equal opportunities and the compatibility of family and career. To draw near to this concern, the MPI established a childcare that our co-workers can benefit from.

Since November 1st, 2019, the “KOFO-ZWERGE” offer care for nine children aged between 0 and 4 years at the Höhenweg 17 in 45470 Mulheim. The kindergarten is run by Kind & Co. and Andrea Bosserhoff is available as a contact person at the institute. Care will be offered between approximately 8.00 am until 4.00 pm.

Additional information on questions concerning childcare can be found on the homepage of the city of Mülheim.

Furthermore, the Max Planck Society offers funding for childcare costs for young scientists. Information on this can be found in the brochure "Offers for Childcare for Young Children".
