The Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics offers excellent working opportunities in scientific and non-scientific areas. In accordance with Max Planck Society’s policy, we endeavor to increase the proportion of women in those fields where they are under-represented. Women are therefore expressly encouraged to apply. Accordingly, we are committed to hiring more disabled persons, so we encourage applications from disabled persons.
