The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Crime, Security and Law welcomes external scholars to conduct research in criminal law, criminology, public law, legal theory, and legal philosophy on a temporary basis. A limited number of desks for guest researchers are available. Preference is given to scholars whose projects are in line with research conducted in one of the three departments of the Institute. Please note if you are planning to apply for a scholarship from the DAAD, the AvH Foundation or another research institution: You should first apply for one of the few research places at the Institute.
In compliance with the rules of the Max Planck Society, all arriving guest scholars must enter into a Guest Residency Agreement with the Institute for the duration of their expected research stay.
