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

Work­ing field:

The cen­ter for Adapt­ive Ration­al­ity dir­ec­ted by Ralph Her­twig at the Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Devel­op­ment is seek­ing applic­ants for a research intern­ship. Research intern­ships typ­ic­ally last 3 months. The anti­cip­ated start date is Octo­ber 1st, 2017.

Require­ments:

  • Enroll­ment in Psy­cho­logy, Eco­nom­ics or a related sub­ject at a European uni­versity
  • High interest in par­ti­cip­at­ing in research on judg­ment and decision-mak­ing
  • High flex­ib­il­ity and com­mittment
  • Good pro­fi­ciency in Eng­lish and Ger­man

Desired qual­i­fic­a­tions (not all are neces­sary to apply)
  • Com­mu­nic­a­tion skills
  • Skills in stat­ist­ics and stat­ist­ical soft­ware pack­ages

What we of­fer:

The Cen­ter for Adapt­ive Ration­al­ity is invest­ig­at­ing vari­ous aspects of judg­ment and decision-mak­ing. We offer you the chance to par­ti­cip­ate in an inter­na­tional and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research team. You will assist in run­ning an eye­track­ing exper­i­ment, and, if inter­ested, in ana­lyz­ing eye­track­ing and beha­vi­oral data col­lec­ted in this study. You will inter­act with sci­ent­ists doing research using beha­vi­oral, com­pu­ta­tional and/or neur­os­cience meth­ods to study the cog­nit­ive, affect­ive, social and/or devel­op­mental basis for decision mak­ing. The Max Planck Soci­ety is com­mit­ted to employ­ing more han­di­capped indi­vidu­als and espe­cially encour­ages them to apply. 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:

The dead­line for sub­mit­ting applic­a­tions is August 21st, 2017. Please send your applic­a­tion elec­tron­ic­ally to leuker@mpib-berlin.mpg.de using the sub­ject line “Applic­a­tion Research Intern­ship 1708”. Your applic­a­tion should include the fol­low­ing doc­u­ments in a single PDF doc­u­ment: (a) a short motiv­a­tion let­ter, (b) CV, and (c) rel­ev­ant school/uni­versity cer­ti­fic­ates and ref­er­ences.
