The WZB Ber­lin Social Sci­ence Cen­ter con­ducts basic research with a focus on prob­lems of mod­ern soci­et­ies in a glob­al­ized world. The research is the­ory-based, prob­lem-ori­ented, often long-term and mostly based on inter­na­tional com­par­is­ons.

Sev­eral Research Asso­ci­ate Pos­i­tions

Work­ing field:

Ber­lin’s aca­demic research insti­tu­tions in eco­nom­ics cooper­ate more and more closely. The fol­low­ing insti­tu­tions together form the Ber­lin School of Eco­nom­ics (BSE) to pro­mote the careers of junior research­ers: the Ger­man Insti­tute for Eco­nomic Research (DIW Ber­lin), the School of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics at Hum­boldt-Uni­versität zu Ber­lin (HU), the School of Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics at Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin (FU), the WZB Ber­lin Social Sci­ence Cen­ter, the School of Eco­nom­ics and Man­age­ment at Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin (TU), the ESMT European School of Man­age­ment and Tech­no­logy Ber­lin (ESMT), the Her­tie School of Gov­ernance and the Uni­versity of Pots­dam.
