Seit 1998 ist Martin Jansen Mitglied des wissenschaftlichen Rates der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft und Direktor am Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung Stuttgart. Zu seinen Arbeitsgebieten gehören präparative Festkörperchemie, Kristallchemie, Materialforschung und Struktur-Eigenschafts-Beziehungen bei Feststoffen. Er entwickelte ein Konzept zur Planung von Festkörpersynthesen, bei dem die Verknüpfung von theoretischen und experimentellen Verfahren den Weg zu einer rationalen und effektiven Erschließung neuer Materialien weist.

Since 1998, he has been a member of the scientific council of the Max Planck Society and a director at the Max Planck Institute for solid-state research in Stuttgart. His main research lies in the field of preparative solid-state chemistry, crystal chemistry, materials research, in particular the structure-property relationship of solids. He has developed a concept for planning solid state syntheses, combining computational and experimental tools, that is pointing the way to rational and efficient discovery of new materials.
