for MDC employees
The MDC offers German and English classes available free-of-charge to all MDC employees, including PhD students.
Classes are offered twice a year, usually in Spring and Fall, with no more than 12 participants per class. You can test your German online here to have a preliminary idea of your level of knowledge. If your level of German knowledge is better than B2 or C1, and there are no regular classes at the MDC suitable for you. Alternatively, you can apply for support to the MDC Committee for further education. Please visit the intranet for more information.
If you have registered at one of our partner universities (either Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin or Freie Universität Berlin), you are eligible to join regular German classes organised by the corresponding language centres.
There are also numerous schools teaching German to foreigners in Berlin, so you can find one suitable for you. Here are a couple of useful links:

The Career Center organizes several mentoring programs for different target groups.
Our Mentoring Program is designed for all postdocs and staff in science management of the Max Delbrück Center. In addition to one-to-one mentoring our program will offer regular group meetings to reflect and accompany the mentoring process as well as workshops on specific topics and career counseling. The Mentoring Program is our contribution to support equal opportunities in science.
In our Postdoc-2-PhD Mentoring Program postdocs act as mentors for PhD researchers.
In addition to workshops in different career paths, one important aspect of the ASPIRE program is the one-year long mentoring. The Mentoring revolves around the career aspirations of the postdocs and any topic connected to it.
The exclusive online networking platform MDC Connect is for staff, alumni and project partners to engage and collaborate with the global community of current and former staff of the Max Delbrück Center. It contains a Mentoring Platform where everyone can participate as Mentors or Mentees. Both benefit from our Mentoring Platform alike.
