The Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics offers excellent career opportunities in both research and non-research-oriented areas. In accordance with Max Planck Society policy, we aim to increase the proportion of women in fields where they are underrepresented and therefore urge women in particular to apply. We are also committed to hiring more people with disabilities and expressly encourage applications from disabled persons.
