Senior Researcher – PERFAR data portal
The social law department of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science [Max-Planck-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Wissenschaften e.V.] is recruting a Senior Researcher (full time) for the establishing of a databank offering information on social benefits systems.
The position is initially limited to three years.
The data portal PERFAR (Population Europe Resource Finder Archive) offers legal and economic data on demographic developments in Europe. The socio-political and legal information stored therein shall be expanded and further developed. Within the framework of a new interdisciplinary project the task, from a legal perspective, will be to tackle the challenge of assessing benefits systems with a view to obtaining sufficiently accurate and significantly quantifiable data.
- law degree with above-average qualifications, preferably combined with a completed doctoral degree; if possible, knowledge of social law and/or migration law;
- ability to work in a team and interest in interdisciplinary research;
- good command of English and, if possible, of further languages.
We offer a well-equipped workplace in a central location.
Remuneration is offered according to the collective agreement for public service employees (Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst – TvöDBund). Social benefits are paid in compliance with the regulations of the public service.
The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the proportion of employed women in those areas where they are underrepresented and explicitly encourages women to apply for this position.
The Max Planck Society also seeks to employ more severely disabled persons. Severely disabled persons are therefore explicitly encouraged to apply.
Please send your application preferably via email (in one connected PDF file, if possible) quoting reference number 08-17 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
