Doctoral Fellowship in Economic Sociology

MaxPo invites applications for one doctoral fellowship in economic sociology. The fellowship recipient will work under the supervision of Prof. Olivier Godechot and is required to apply for formal enrollment in the doctoral program in Sociology at Sciences Po in Paris.

Applicants’ research interests should fall into the area of MaxPo’s research program, and their PhD project proposal should fit Olivier Godechot’s research group at MaxPo. We welcome origi-nal and independent proposals.

Research topics could include: Labor markets and inequality; socio-economic segregation; team dynamics and team splits in organizations, firms, and political parties; the sociology of financial markets; the political and social consequences of economic crises.

The MaxPo PhD program runs in close collaboration with the doctoral program of the International Max Planck Research School on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy (IMPRS-SPCE) in Cologne. Together, we offer the possibility of a double doctorate degree (cotutelle de thèse).
