Senior Research Fellow (Postdoc)
for the Max Planck Research Group MAGGI:
"The Multiplication of Authorities in Global Governance Institutions"
headed by PD Dr. Janne Mende
The newly founded Max Planck Research Group commences in January 2021 in Heidelberg. It focuses on the authority of state, intergovernmental and non-state actors in international institutions: Which actors (states, companies, NGOs, IO organs, national human rights institutes, cities, unions etc.) have which form of authority in which forums (UN, EU) - and how can their authority be democratically embedded? Operationalizing authority with the triad of power, legitimacy and reference to public interests, the Research Group will identify different forms of authority along the lines of institutionalization, legalization and participation. These require and enable the concept of authority to be multiplied between and beyond public and private authority, in order to meet the challenges for democracy on a global level.
The Senior Research Fellow will conduct individual qualitative empirical research with a focus on the European Union, contribute to joint projects, events, and the dissemination of research output. The position entails no formal teaching requirements.
Requirements: Master's degree and a (nearly) completed PhD in political science, international relations, political theory, international law or a related area / experience with publications / outstanding analytical and writing skills / high motivation for academic work / excellent command of English (German is an asset) / research experience in at least two of the following areas: (a) European Union, (b) global governance, (c) qualitative research, (d) power and democracy on a global level.
The position starts in January 2021 on a full-time basis (39h/week). The initial appointment will be for 2 years, with the intention of renewal. The salary and social benefits are determined in accordance with salary group 14 of the German public service pay scheme (TVöD-Bund). The successful candidate will join a dynamic and interdisciplinary team that forms part of the vibrant international research community at one of Europe's most renowned public law institutes.
The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages them to apply. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and hence encourages their applications.
