3 PhD Scholarships

What happens to institutions and individuals under conditions of  
demographic aging and fast knowledge turnover? The Jacobs
Center focuses in research and teaching on exactly this question and is in  
particular interested in developmental processes
in the work context. The interdisciplinary PhD Program (social and  
behavioral sciences) is revolving around thematic areas
such as the following: A comparison of physical, psychological profiles of  
older and younger Workers: (i) The role of
motivation, physical activity, and environmental stress; (ii) The relation  
between organizational climate, subjective well-
being and (job) performance; (iii) Participation in lifelong learning -  
organizational and individual predictors. Work on the
PhD thesis is accompanied by doctoral seminars and a colloquium series.

We are looking for excellent international and German students from the  
social and behavioral sciences (e.g., psychology,
sociology). Expertise in quantitative empirical methods is essential.  
Students are expected to hold a degree equivalent to a
Master or a Diplom. Scholarships will start January 2006. Deadline for  
applications: December 30, 2005. Direct written
applications (including CV, certificates, letter of motivation including a  
statement of preference concerning the three
thematic areas; two separately sent letters of reference; proof of English
