Max-Planck-Insti­tut für Bil­dungs­for­schung - Depart­ment: Humans and Machi­nes

The Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Deve­lop­ment is dedi­ca­ted to the study of human deve­lop­ment and edu­ca­tion. Rese­ar­chers of various disci­pli­nes – inclu­ding psy­cho­logy, edu­ca­tion, socio­logy and medi­cine, as well as history, eco­no­mics, com­pu­ter sci­ence and mathe­ma­tics – work tog­e­ther on inter­di­sci­pli­nary pro­jects at the Ber­lin Insti­tute. The rese­arch ques­ti­ons they examine include how people make effec­tive decisi­ons even under time pres­sure and infor­ma­tion over­load, how the inter­ac­tion bet­ween beha­viour and brain func­tion chan­ges over the life­span, as well as how human emo­ti­ons change in a his­to­ri­cal con­text and how they have affec­ted the course of history its­elf.

Mas­ter Stu­dent Research Assist­ant in Visual Arts/Graphic Design

Work­ing field:

The Centre for Humans and Machines (CHM) within the Max Planck Insti­tute for Human
Devel­op­ment is seek­ing a Mas­ter Stu­dent Research Assist­ant to work on the visual design for the pop­u­lar BeeMe exper­i­ment and its sup­port­ing doc­u­ment­ary. The selec­ted stu­dent will work under Dr. Nic­colo Pes­cetelli and CHM Dir­ector Assoc. Prof. (MIT) Iyad Rah­wan, Ph.D.

The pro­posed pro­ject aims at pro­du­cing pro­fes­sional visual mater­ial (e.g., logo, flyer, poster) for the doc­u­ment­ary “How does it feel to be the Inter­net?”, which doc­u­ments the mak­ing of the BeeMe exper­i­ment. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate is expec­ted to con­duct a thor­ough study on the brand and concept behind the BeeMe pro­ject and pro­duce visual mater­ial that can later be used for dis­sem­in­a­tion, advert­ise­ment and web con­tent.


The ideal stu­dent researcher will be under­tak­ing a Mas­ters in Visual Art, Graphic Design or a related dis­cip­line. The fol­low­ing are required:
  • Exper­i­ence in visual and graphic design, par­tic­u­larly within the SciFi genre
  • Know­ledge of pop­u­lar visual design pro­grams (e.g., Pho­toshop, Illus­trator etc.)
  • Exper­i­ence in cre­at­ing pro­fes­sional logos, fly­ers and posters
  • Exper­i­ence in brand­ing and concept design

How to ap­ply:

The Max Planck Society stri­ves for gen­der and diver­sity equa­lity. We wel­come app­li­ca­ti­ons from all back­grounds. The Max Planck Society is com­mit­ted to increa­sing the num­ber of indi­vi­du­als with disa­bi­li­ties in its work­force and the­re­fore encou­ra­ges app­li­ca­ti­ons from such qua­li­fied indi­vi­du­als.
