Short-term internships


Twice a year, the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies offers a small number of short-term internships. A serious interest in the social sciences is required as well as above-average study grades and a willingness to work independently on projects. Social science students in at least the 5th semester of their BA program or those completing an MA program must apply by 31.12. for the following summer semester and by 30.6. for the winter semester.


Please provide a letter of motivation/cover letter stating the preferred start/end dates of the internship and give reasons why a particular MPIfG project area interests you.

Please submit your online application as a single PDF document containing: a cover letter, CV, qualifications, and a relevant example of your coursework (excerpt of up to 10 pages).
