The Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo) is welcoming applications from senior academics for
2–4-month research stays at Sciences Po in the heart of Paris.
Established in 2012 by the Max Planck Society and Sciences Po Paris, MaxPo is a Franco-German center in the social sciences. Its research focuses on investigating how individuals, organizations, and politics are coping with the increased instability that has developed in Western societies during the last forty years due to liberalization policies and cultural shifts. Research at the center is conducted by two co-directors, Jenny Andersson and Olivier Godechot.
MaxPo’s research agenda can be found at www.maxpo.eu. We encourage researchers with projects in economic and financial sociology, political economy, economic history and political history to apply.
MaxPo offers office space, a round-trip ticket, and a stipend to help cover accommodation expenses in Paris. Applicants must have their own additional funding to cover living expenses. Visiting fellows will present their work in MaxPo’s seminar program.
Please send a cover letter, CV, and a short description (1 to 2 pages) of your research project, by June 15, 2016 for stays planned for the period September 1, 2016– June 30, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MaxPo does not offer funded postdoctoral positions. However, we are happy to consider supporting young scholars wishing to apply for outside funding if their topics fit well with the MaxPo research agenda. Please contact the directors for further information.
