Max Planck Institute: Research Fellowship on Blackness and Racialisation in Europe

The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity is dedicated to the multidisciplinary study of diversity in historical and modern societies, especially concerning ethnic, religious, political, and legal processes and dynamics. This work includes basic empirical research to advance theoretical concepts.

The Minerva Fast Track Research Group Migration, Identity and Blackness in Europe, situated at the Department of Socio-Cultural Diversity, is inviting applications for the position of

Research Fellow [Postdoctoral] (m/f/d)
(full-time for two years with a starting date of 1 June 2023 or earlier)

The newly established research group takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying Blackness, racialization, and identity formation and transformation processes in the context of migration. The group explores questions such as: how are migrants’ identities (trans)formed in the context of migration? How do migrants communicate their own identities, and how do others communicate about migrants? And what can we learn if we look at racialization and migration as interconnected processes? In answering these questions, the group combines qualitative research methods (e.g., interviews and ethnographic observations) with computational methods (e.g., computational text analysis). The group is committed to doing non-exploitative research and engaging in participatory research practices. Our main focus is on African migrants in Europe, particularly Germany.

The successful research fellow is expected to (1) contribute to the group’s research projects, carrying out research on the multiple dimensions of Blackness and Africanness and the identifications of African migrants in Germany at the group or/and societal level, (2) be open to work with community-based organizations and initiatives (in Germany), and (3) play an active role in the organization of international seminars and the publication of research in key academic venues, as well as for wider audiences.

Your Profile

Applicants should have a strong interest in studying the interconnections between identity, communication, migration and racialization, focusing on the European context. Applicants must hold a PhD in sociology, psychology, anthropology, linguistics, data science, or similar. Applicants expecting a PhD must have submitted their thesis by 24th February 2023.

Very good spoken and written English and some basic knowledge of German are required. Very good spoken and written German is an advantage. The working language at the institute is English and regular presence at the Institute is required.

Our Offer

The contract will be for a full-time position and for a period of two years ending 30 June 2025. 1-year extensions are also possible, contingent upon confirmation of funds. Salary is based on the German collective agreement for civil servants (TVöD Bund), level E 13.

The Max Planck Society is mainly funded by the German Federal and State Governments (see Max Planck Institutes provide outstanding facilities, academic resources and intellectual environments to support independent research. Max Planck Institutes are not tied to universities. There are no teaching obligations for staff, but teaching and other forms of cooperation with universities are possible.

The Max Planck Society wishes to increase the participation of women across the sciences. Applications from women are, therefore, particularly welcome, as are applications from people of diverse gender or sexual orientations.
