Call for Nominations for the Position of Director at Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Social Law and Social Policy

The Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Social Law and Social Policy invites nominations, including self-nominations, for a Director, who is expected to lead a research department at the Institute. The future Director’s unique, innovative and long-term research program should focus on social policy in a broad sense from a social science perspective (economics, sociology, political science).

Research at the MPI for Social Law and Social Policy focusses on questions related to social policies in an international and comparative perspective and on the enormous present challenges to the welfare state. The Institute is in the process of reinforcing its cooperation with the MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance and of creating the ‘Max Planck Hub Fiscal and Social State’. Both Institutes deal with transfer systems that not only face similar challenges today but affect our social order as a whole. This raises questions of theoretical, empirical and normative relevance which we would like to address jointly. The new Director should be open to an interdisciplinary exchange within our Institute and within the Hub.
