Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Deve­lop­ment - Cen­ter for Adap­tive Ratio­na­lity

Der For­schungs­be­reich für Adap­tive Ratio­na­li­tät (ARC) ver­eint eine inter­dis­zi­pli­näre, inter­na­tio­nale For­scher­gruppe, die sich aus Wis­sen­schaft­le­rin­nen und Wis­sen­schaft­lern der Psy­cho­lo­gie, Neu­ro­wis­sen­schaf­ten, Öko­no­mie, Phi­lo­so­phie, Bio­lo­gie und Mathe­ma­tik zusam­men­setzt. Wir unter­su­chen, wie Men­schen und andere Lebe­we­sen – aus­ge­stat­tet mit begrenz­ten kogni­ti­ven Res­sour­cen – in der Welt und im Gedächt­nis nach Infor­ma­tio­nen suchen und wie sie Ent­schei­dun­gen tref­fen, wenn wenig Zeit für sorg­fäl­ti­ges Nach­den­ken bleibt.

Research Intern­ship Fish beha­viour

Work­ing field:

The Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Devel­op­ment is recruit­ing an intern for a research intern­ship to study the trans­fer of inform­a­tion in fish pop­u­la­tions. The pro­ject invest­ig­ates whether the social net­work struc­ture in fish pop­u­la­tions pre­dicts how inform­a­tion travels through pop­u­la­tions. The field­work for this pro­ject has already been com­pleted and we are recruit­ing a stu­dent to assist in ana­lyz­ing video mater­ial on the order of fish arriv­ing at food patches and the sub­sequent data ana­lyses. The intern­ship offers the pos­sib­il­ity to gain first-hand exper­i­ence in sci­entific data col­lec­tion and ana­lyses in a stim­u­lat­ing research envir­on­ment. The applic­ant will work in close col­lab­or­a­tion with a research sci­ent­ist at the insti­tute (Dr. Ralf Kur­v­ers) and in cooper­a­tion with the Leib­niz-Insti­tute of Fresh­wa­ter Eco­logy and Inland Fish­er­ies (Prof. Jens Krause).

What we of­fer:

Intern­ships typ­ic­ally last 10 to 12 weeks or longer and are reim­bursed with about 380 Euros per month (based on full-time intern­ship). The pre­ferred start­ing date is June 1 2017, but oth­ers dates are nego­ti­able. Also part-time intern­ship is pos­sible.

How to ap­ply:

To apply, please send a (i) short state­ment of research interest, (ii) a cur­riculum vitae and (iii) a high-school dip­loma (Abit­urzeugnis) as a single PDF file to Ralf Kur­v­ers (
