Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Deve­lop­ment - Cen­ter for Humans & Machi­nes

The Cen­ter for Humans & Machi­nes con­ducts inter­di­sci­pli­nary sci­ence, to under­stand, anti­ci­pate, and shape major dis­rup­ti­ons from digi­tal media and Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence to the way we think, learn, work, play, coope­rate and gov­ern.

Stu­dent Research Assist­ant | Office for
Sci­entific Sup­port


Seek­ing motiv­ated Stu­dent Assist­ant for the Office for Sci­entific Sup­port focus­ing on com­mu­nic­a­tion and organ­iz­a­tional assist­ance in an inter­na­tional team of research­ers

Working field:

The Cen­ter for Humans & Machines (CHM) con­ducts inter­dis­cip­lin­ary sci­ence to under­stand, anti­cip­ate, and shape major dis­rup­tions from digital media and Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence to the way we think, learn, work, play, cooper­ate and gov­ern. Our goal is to under­stand how machines are shap­ing human soci­ety today and how they may con­tinue to shape it in the future. The Cen­ter is com­prised of an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary, inter­na­tional, and diverse group of schol­ars and a sci­ence sup­port team. To com­ple­ment this team, we are look­ing for a motiv­ated Stu­dent Assist.
