Max-Planck-Insti­tut für Bil­dungs­for­schung

The Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Devel­op­ment is ded­ic­ated to the study of human devel­op­ment and edu­ca­tion. Research­ers of vari­ous dis­cip­lines work together on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary pro­jects at the Ber­lin Insti­tute.

Work­ing field:

The CON­MEM Pro­ject (Cog­nit­ive and Neural Dynam­ics of Memory Across the Lifespan) at the Cen­ter for Lifespan Psy­cho­logy, Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Devel­op­ment, Ber­lin, seeks motiv­ated and reli­able stu­dent applic­ants for a

Three-Month Full­time Intern­ship Start­ing Feb­ru­ary or March 2019

The pro­ject ́s aim is to under­stand the mech­an­isms that lead to dif­fer­ences in atten­tion, epis­odic and work­ing memory across the lifespan. For this pur­pose we com­bine exper­i­mental and train­ing stud­ies with ima­ging tech­niques such as EEG and struc­tural and func­tional MRI. Occa­sion­ally we also col­lect eye-track­ing and peri­pheral physiolo­gical data.


We are look­ing for two reli­able and respons­ible stu­dents of psy­cho­logy, neur­os­cience, or related sub­jects who enjoy deal­ing with people of dif­fer­ent age groups. Require­ments are advanced Eng­lish lan­guage skills and an interest in neuro­cog­nit­ive devel­op­mental psy­cho­logy. We are look­ing for one stu­dent to work on data ana­lysis (flu­ent Eng­lish required) and one stu­dent to work on data col­lec­tion (flu­ent Ger­man required). Meth­od­o­lo­gical exper­i­ence (Mat­lab, R, SPSS) are bene­fi­cial.

What we of­fer:

Intern­ships in our pro­ject enable stu­dents to gain exper­i­ence in pre­par­a­tion and real­iz­a­tion of EEG and (f)MRI stud­ies and ana­lysis of data in devel­op­mental psy­cho­logy. Interns work on defined tasks that are part of our on-going research pro­jects and will be super­vised by sci­entific staff.
The reim­burse­ment will be 380 EUR per month.
The Max Planck Soci­ety is com­mit­ted to increas­ing the num­ber of indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies in its work­force and there­fore encour­ages applic­a­tions from such qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als. The Max Planck Soci­ety seeks to increase the num­ber of women in those areas where they are under­rep­res­en­ted and there­fore expli­citly encour­ages women to apply.

How to ap­ply:

Full applic­a­tions con­tain­ing a CV (in Eng­lish), Bach­elor or other uni­versity cer­ti­fic­ates, gradu­ation dip­loma, job cer­ti­fic­ates, ref­er­ence let­ters (where these exist), and cover let­ter (in Eng­lish) should be sent without a photo as a single PDF file to:
