The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (MPIfG) provides an attractive environment for postdoctoral researchers to pursue their own research projects within the scope of the Institute's research program. Postdoctoral researchers receive support in the form of a 1-year contract based on the Public Service Wage Agreement (TVöD E 13). Successful projects may be extended for a further year. Postdoctoral researchers receive their own office at the MPIfG and actively participate in the intellectual life at the Institute.
 
The MPIfG conducts basic research on the governance of modern societies. It aims to develop an empirically based theory of the social and political foundations of modern economies by investigating the interrelation between social, economic and political action. Building on the disciplinary traditions of sociology and political science, the Institute's research program aims to combine and develop the approaches of new economic sociology and comparative political economy.
 
Projects at the institute are clustered in four research areas:


The MPIfG considers international cooperation to be the most promising organizational form of comparative research. Many visiting researchers make valuable contributions to its research program.
 
The MPIfG is part of a worldwide network of research institutions and researchers working in the social sciences. It cooperates closely with several research institutes abroad.
