Posted: 10/5/2018 (Employment)

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) is recruiting Post-Docs and Research Scientists.

The MPIDR is one of the leading demographic centers in the world. It is part of the Max Planck Society, a network of over 80 institutes that form Germany’s premier basic-research organization. Max Planck Institutes have an established record of world-class, foundation research in the sciences, technology, and the social sciences, and they offer a unique environment that combines the best aspects of an academic setting and a research laboratory.

We are currently recruiting research scientists with four or more years of post-doctoral experience, and post-docs with less than four years of experience. Candidates with an innovative demographic research agenda and strong quantitative skills are encouraged to apply. The successful candidates will work in one or more of MPIDR director Mikko Myrskylä’s research groups: Population Health, Labor Demography, or Fertility and Well-Being. Please see http://www.demogr.mpg.de/ for descriptions of these research groups.

The positions are initially for 3 years, with the possibility for prolongation. The MPIDR offers an excellent research environment and support, a low teaching load, and a competitive salary that starts at approx. 54,000-74,000 EUR gross per year depending on relevant post-doctoral experience. Remuneration is based on the salary structure of the German public sector (Öffentlicher Dienst, TVöD Bund). The MPIDR offers family-friendly work arrangements (flexible working hours, teleworking, and guaranteed places at day-care centers for children), occupational health promotion, and opportunities for continuous further training. The starting date is flexible, but no later than fall 2019.
