Max Planck Law connects eleven world-class Institutes to form one of the world’s biggest, most accomplished, and best funded frameworks for foundational research and graduate training in law. Like our Nobel-winning colleagues in the natural sciences, Max Planck Law is committed to pushing the frontiers of legal knowledge.

Our Institutes offer unrivalled conditions, including access to rare specialist libraries and data bases, generous work spaces, administrative, academic, and pastoral support, and generous funding. We invite exceptional candidates across the world to apply.
In addition to general research opportunities, specific research positions often leading to doctoral or post-doctoral qualifications in law are frequently advertised by Institutes within the Max Planck Law network. See our up-to-date list of all current vacancies.
