Visiting Fellows at the Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies

The Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo) is welcoming applications from senior academics for 2–4-month research stays at Sciences Po in the heart of Paris.

Established in 2012 by the Max Planck Society and Sciences Po Paris, MaxPo is a Franco-German center in the social sciences. Its research focuses on investigating how individuals, organizations, and polities are coping with the increased instability that has developed in Western societies during the last forty years due to liberalization policies and cultural shifts. Research at the center is led by two co-directors, Jenny Andersson and Olivier Godechot.

MaxPo’s research agenda can be found at http://www.maxpo.eu/research.asp. We encourage researchers with projects in economic and financial sociology, political economy, economic history, and political history to apply.

MaxPo offers office space, a round-trip ticket, and a stipend to help cover accommodation expenses in Paris. Applicants must have their own additional funding to cover living expenses. Visiting fellows will present their work in MaxPo’s seminar program.

Please send a cover letter, CV, and a short description (1-2 pages) of your research project by April 30, 2017 for stays planned for the period September 1, 2017–June 30, 2018 to allison.rovny@sciencespo.fr
