Cambridge Exchange

Our research partnership with the University of Cambridge is a unique opportunity for Max Planck Law (MPL) researchers to further their horizons — and their research — in one of the most respected institutions for the study of law. The exchange take place every academic year.

A maximum of two PhD students or postdocs from the participating Institutes of Max Planck Law will be in residence in Cambridge either Michaelmas Term (Autumn) or Lent Term (Spring).  They will be known as “Cambridge Visiting Research Students”.  In return, two Cambrige researchers will be hosted by one of the Institutes in the Max Planck Law network.

MPL’s visitors to Cambridge will be treated like regular Faculty visitors, with access to the library, online resources, and the Senior Combination Room.

Max Planck Law will cover travel expenses and Cambridge will cover reasonable accommodation costs arranged as far as possible in one of the Cambridge colleges. Should the MPL visitor to Cambridge be accompanied by a partner, then only the costs for the visitor (or equivalent) will be covered.

Successful applicants will be responsible for obtaining the necessary visa and associated travel documentation, should such be required.

The second MPL-Cambridge Exchange is scheduled for autumn 2022, and winter ands spring 2023. Please note that given current uncertainties related to COVID-19, the dates for residency at Cambridge must be negotiated individually by the successful applicants.

The deadline for application was  1 March 2022.
