The International Max Planck Research School on Adapting Behavior in a Fundamentally Uncertain World (Uncertainty-School) combines approaches from Economics, Law and Psychology to explain human decisions under uncertainty more effectively and to better design institutional responses. The Uncertainty-School is jointly hosted by the Max Planck Institutes at Jena, Berlin and Bonn, and the Psychology and Economics Departments of the FSU Jena. International Partners are the Department of Psychology of Indiana University, Bloomington, and the Interdepartmental Centre for Research Training in Economics and Management (CIFREM) at the University of Trento, and the Center for Rationality at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. Outstanding candidates are invited to apply for doctoral fellowships in psychology.
Applicants are required to hold a Diplom, a Masters Degree or a State Exam with honors in one of the above mentioned disciplines or an equivalent degree in a related discipline. Fellowships start on July 1st, 2010 and include funding for up to three years. Research will be conducted in English at either Jena, Berlin or Bonn. Besides the summer school, dedicated to providing a sound knowledge in the neighboring disciplines, doctoral fellows will benefit from the academic training and intellectual life at the participating institutions.
Both, the Max Planck Society and the Friedrich Schiller University are committed to improve the pportunities for women in the sciences and particularly encourage them to apply.
Program details and the online application form are provided at http://www.imprs.econ.mpg.de/application. Applications have to be submitted online and should include a CV, transcripts, a letter of interest and two letters of recommendations.
