Exchange Programmes: Call for Applications

Max Planck Law maintains exchange programmes with three leading law faculties, at the University of Cambridge, the University of Melbourne, and The National University of Singapore. These programmes provide a unique opportunity for Max Planck Law researchers to expand their horizons and pursue their research at institutions which are amongst the most respected for the study of law.

The exchange takes 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 each of our three partner universities. In return, up to two researchers from the partner universities will be hosted by the Institutes in the Max Planck Law network.

Max Planck Law is now inviting applications to visit Cambridge in either the Michaelmas Term (Autumn) or Lent Term (Spring); the Spring (January to April) and Autumn (August to November) terms for Singapore; and semester 1 (March to May) or semester 2 (July to October) for Melbourne.

Max Planck Law will cover travel expenses, and the host institutions will cover reasonable accommodation costs or provide accommodation.

All researchers employed at one of the ten Institutes in the Max Planck Law network at the time of their proposed visit are eligible to apply.

To apply, please send the following documents to petersson@law.mpg.de by 28 February 2023:

  • a CV
  • a letter of motivation explaining how the exchange will benefit your research
    a statement from your Director authorizing your participation in the Exchange should your application be

If you have any questions, please contact the Research Coordinator, Dr Niels P Petersson, at petersson@law.mpg.de.
