MaxNetAging Research School

The MaxNetAging Research School (MNARS) was a funding program launched by the MaxNetAging Network. It provided funding for doctoral and postdoctoral students. Each MNARS student was affiliated with one of the participating Max Planck Institutes. At the beginning of the first year, the PhD students and postdocs spent an initial period of six months at the MPIDR. The aim of the initial period was to provide the MNARS fellows with basic instruction, to extend their specialization towards a broader perspective on aging research, to stimulate cross-disciplinary collaboration among the students, and to complement their PhD education. Following the initial period, the PhD students and postdocs continued their education and research projects at the Max Planck Institute they are affiliated with, under the supervision of its director.

In 2019 the program ended. Applications are no longer possible.

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock is one of the leading demographic research centers in the world. It's part of the Max Planck Society, the internationally renowned German research society.
