Research projects should fit with one of the project’s focal points

The Max Planck Society is committed to promoting more individuals with disabilities and encourages them to apply. The Institute language is English; it is expected that candidates will be able to present their own work and discuss that of others fluently in that language.

The successful applicant may be employed as a predoctoral fellow rated 50% TVöD E13 in the German system, or alternatively receive a fellowship (monthly stipend: € 1,365). Candidates of all nationalities are encouraged to apply.
