The Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology is one of the leading centres for research in social anthropology. Common to all research projects at the Max Planck Institute is the comparative analysis of social change; it is primarily in this domain that its researchers contribute to anthropological theory, though many programmes also have applied significance and political topicality.
Department ‘Resilience and Transformation in Eurasia’ of the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology is looking forward to refill
one postdoctoral position in the Research Group ‘REALEURASIA’
(starting October 1st, 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter, to end 30 June 2019)
As the project enters its final two years, a postdoctoral researcher is sought in the field of economic anthropology or an adjacent field (such as sociology or economic history). Familiarity with the concept of moral economy and/or civilisational theory are an advantage.
