Country-cases are Germany, Italy, and Israel.

–  2 PhD positions, Mannheim Center for European Social Research (MZES), Germany

The Emmy-Noether research group “Making Diversity Work” at the Mannheim Center for European Social Research (MZES) invites applications for 2 PhD positions (m/w/d, TV-L 13, 65%) starting 1 September 2023.

The “Making Diversity Work” project aims to explain how trust and cooperation can be sustained in multiethnic German neighborhoods. Using innovative field experimental methods, this project will develop a sophisticated set of behavioral indicators to map variation in “prosocial” behavior across diverse urban areas. The data generated will be used to (i) systematically test novel theories about how different features of diverse neighborhoods contribute to local cooperation, (ii) investigate the behavioral mechanisms underlying social cohesion in multiethnic settings, and (iii) develop a richer understanding of social relations that takes both natives’ and minorities’ experiences into account. PhD candidates will have the opportunity to develop their own research ideas within this broad topical framework. In addition to research and dissertation writing, PhD candidates will also undertake rigorous training offered through the Center for Doctoral Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences.

(https://www.uni-mannheim.de/gess/programs/cdss/cdss-programs/)

The positions are funded for a minimum of 3 years, with the possibility for up to 1 year of additional funding.
Applications including a cover letter, CV, and a short writing sample should be submitted electronically as one pdf file to Dr. Nan Zhang (n.zhang@uni-mannheim.de). Informal inquiries may also be directed to the same address.

The deadline for applications is the 15th of November 2022.
