Jobs and Student Opportunities
Our research group recruits PhD students through our MACIS program "Master of Arts in Comparative and International Studies". We encourage those interested in pursuing a PhD in our research group to apply to this program even if they already have an MA degree. In principle, we are not willing to admit candidates whom we have not got to know through teaching. Yet, it should be note that admission to the MACIS program is not a guarantee that a PhD position will be available, since we only admit students whom we can fully fund and resources are always limited. Moreover, our decisions to hire PhD students depend directly on prior performance in the MACIS program.
We hire postdoc researchers almost exclusively from previous PhD researchers or through specific project calls that are posted on the web page. Typically, we do not admit postdoc applicants who propose personal projects even if they bring their own fellowship money.
