An important aspect of the Max-Planck-UBC-UTokyo collaboration is to give undergraduate UBC and UTokyo students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in research projects in Max-Planck (MP) institutes, UBC, or UTokyo.
An overview of concrete project descriptions is listed here. In addition, the leaders of Max-Planck departments and groups participating in the Max-Planck-UBC- UTokyo Centre are listed under Members whom you can contact for further opportunities. Successful participation in such a job also creates chances for possible later graduate jobs and theses within the MP-UBC-UTokyo collaboration in Max-Planck, UBC and UTokyo groups.
