Call For Papers

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) is seeking to appoint a full-time post-doctoral researcher to join the Research Group on Labor Demography.

We welcome applications from researchers with a PhD in demography, sociology, economics, statistics, epidemiology, or a similar field. The successful candidate will work on a project aimed at understanding which factors are shaping the length of working life, and they will develop their own agenda within this project. We are seeking creative, self-driven, and collaborative scholars. Strong quantitative analysis skills are required. Knowledge of R or Stata is an advantage, as is experience with longitudinal data analysis, causal inference, or labor market research.

We provide a stimulating research-oriented community, an excellent infrastructure, and opportunities to work with exciting datasets. The successful applicant will be offered a contract for up to 4 years with remuneration commensurate to experience (starting from approx. 57,000 EUR gross per year for researchers who have just completed their PhD, up to approx. 71,000 EUR gross per year for more senior scientists), based on the salary structure of the German public sector (Öffentlicher Dienst, TVöD Bund). It is expected that successful applicants will be in residence at the MPIDR. Support for relocation costs is available.

Please apply online via and include in a single PDF file:

1) Letter of interest (max. 1 page)

2) Curriculum Vitae (max. 3 pages, focusing on your most relevant achievements)

3) A writing example (e.g., one of your publications)

4) Contact information for up to 2 academic referees

In order to receive full consideration, please apply by August 15. Interviews are planned for September. The exact starting date is flexible. Applicants should have completed their doctoral degree; however, PhD students who expect to obtain their degree in 2022 or early 2023 may apply.

For inquiries about the position, please contact Christian Dudel at

The MPIDR is one of the leading demographic research centers in the world. It is part of the Max Planck Society, a network of 86 institutes that form Germany’s premier basic-research organization. Max Planck Institutes have an established record of world-class, foundational research in the sciences, technology, social sciences and the humanities. They offer a unique environment that combines the best aspects of an academic setting and a research laboratory.

The Max Planck Society offers a broad range of measures to support the reconciliation of work and family. These are complemented by the MPIDR’s own initiatives. For more information, see:

In addition, there are a range of central initiatives and measures primarily geared towards helping young female researchers and mothers to advance their career. See the link below for some examples:

We value diversity and are keen to employ individuals from minorities and under-represented groups.

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. Furthermore, 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.
