  • education, personal development and learning from early childhood to adult­hood
  • education and social inequality across the life course
  • human capital, labour markets and demographic structures and their impact on social inequality in modern societies
  • governance, institutional change and political behavior

Qualifications and requirements:

We are inviting applications from highly qualified graduates from the fields of So­cio­logy, Psychology, Educational Science, Political Science, Eco­no­mics, Demography, and Statistics. Qualified graduates of related subjects with a strong Social Science back­ground are also encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in one of the afore­mentioned subjects or be very close to completion. Successful ap­pli­cants will be required to take up their residence in Bamberg, a city noted for its very high quality of life.

Remuneration for the doctoral positions is based on Grade E 13 TV-L (50%) of the German Public Service Salary Scale. There is a teaching obligation of two hours per week for one semester.

Holders of the doctoral scholarships receive a monthly stipend of 1,365 Euro, plus family allowances and child-care expenses in accordance with DFG guidelines where applicable.

The Graduate School is committed to diversity, equal opportunity and the com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty of family and career. It therefore explicitly encourages ap­pli­cations from women. As an international research institution, the School particularly welcomes applications from abroad. Applicants with disabilities possessing essentially equivalent qua­li­fi­ca­tions will receive preferential consideration.
