PhD position (f/m) at the Max Planck Institute for the Science ofHuman History (MPI-SHH)
PhD positions at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of
Human History (MPI-SHH)
The MPI-SHH pursues an integrative approach to the study of human history. "Hard"
facts as bones, teeth, plants, stones and "soft" facts as languages, history, or religions
can say a lot about human history. It is our task to understand and interpret them. The
International Max Planck Research School for the Science of Human History (IMPRSSHH)
is seeking for researchers knowing well how to decode such facts and data and
looking for new ways of decoding them. The IMPRS-SHH is a cooperation of the Max
Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and Friedrich Schiller University,
both situated in Jena, a traditional as well as a modern university town in the heart of
Germany. The IMPRS-SHH is offering 16 PhD positions for 14 projects.
Being integrated into state-of-the art ongoing research at the MPI-SHH and FSU, the
IMPRS-SHH provides doctoral researchers a stimulating environment and optimal
conditions for their PhD projects and custom-made preparation for the time thereafter,
both with regard to academic and non-academic careers. We offer a clearly
structured doctoral program with three pillars: a mentoring program for individual supervision
by outstanding scientists, a scientific program of high academic standard,
and a transferable skills program.
