The International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course (LIFE) seeks applicants (m/f) for
3 three-year Doctoral Fellowships
The International Max Planck Research School on the Life Course (LIFE) is a joint
international PhD Program of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, the
Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the University of
Michigan, the University of Virginia, and the University of Zurich. The goal of the
Research School is the study of the development of human behavior from infancy to
old age. LIFE takes an integrative and interdisciplinary approach to identifying,
understanding, and possibly ameliorating the mechanisms and conditions that
shape the human life course.
The target groups of the Research School are international post-master's graduate
students who intend to pursue a doctorate in one of the relevant disciplines (biology,
computer science, economics, educational science, neuroscience, psychology,
sociology). As a collaborative Research School, LIFE offers unique training in the
dynamics of human behavior on different time scales and includes opportunities for
research abroad at one of the cooperating institutions. The training program
involves seminars, a series of academies, and collaborative supervision of research
training. Detailed information, including the roster of faculty at the various
institutions, can be found at www.imprs-life.mpg.de.
The advertised fellowships will all be located at the three collaborating institutions
in Berlin, Germany. Depending on applicants' schedules, the Research School will
commence in April or October 2019. Working language is English. For the Berlin
participants, the doctoral degree will be granted by the Humboldt-Universität zu
Berlin or the Freie Universität Berlin. Positions will be contract-based.
Requirements: Applicants should hold, or anticipate receiving very soon as shown in
supporting documents, a master's degree or equivalent in one of the relevant fields.
The Research School seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where
they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
The Research School is committed to increasing the number of individuals with
disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such
Deadline: November 30, 2018. Decisions about admissions are
scheduled for March 2019.
