The Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy carries out fundamental research at the highest level. Its pursuit of excellence requires highly qualified and motivated staff. This is why it is of core significance to us to provide a work environment in which everyone can develop their individual abilities – regardless of gender, nationality, religion, disability, age, cultural origin or sexual identity. Our employees come to us from all regions and cultures of the world. A condition for good cooperation to work is open communication without discrimination.

We attach great importance to promoting the careers of our junior scholars. For this purpose, the Institute maintains a comprehensive network with national and international universities and research institutes.
