Practitioner Programme of the Max Weber Foundation

The Max Weber Foundation annually invites applications for fellowships for its own employees in the area of research management. The Practitioner Programme serves the purpose of career-related further training through job shadowing in other organizations. Tandem partners have the opportunity to complete a job-shadowing placement at one of the foundation’s institutes abroad or at the foundation’s central office.

The Practitioner Programme:

  • enables a four-week job-shadowing placement in a research organization or an institution in the field of science and culture education and, if applicable, a reciprocal visit of a tandem partner;
  • offers insights into the daily work at the respective institution and should lead to both the exchange of best-practice models and the further development of the workplace;
  • enables the initiation and implementation of cooperation projects and the development and expansion of networks at home and abroad;
  • serves individual further qualifications.

Eligibility to apply:

All employees from the areas of research management, public relations, library, digital humanities, editorial offices, IT and administration are eligible to apply. The call for applications is targeted equally at seconded and local employees. A multi-year employment contract is a prerequisite. Scholarship holders and interns are excluded from the programme.
