Research Visits


It is possible to participate in an unpaid research visit at the Center for Adaptive Rationality (including non-German students, non-EU student). These visits are also highly competitive and depend on the fit between your program of study and the fields of research at ARC.

For specific questions please contact us via Email (see on the right for contact information).

How to apply?

Interested parties should submit a brief (maximum one page) letter, in English, describing their goals and interests along with their basic qualifications (e.g. school standing).  In order to be considered, this letter must describe how one’s course of studies would benefit from and fit within the ongoing research in the center.  Please also include the names of 2 or 3 potential mentors and identify your preference for an internship or research visit.

Please send any questions along with your application (electronically in only one pdf and without photo) stating in which of our projects or research areas you are especially interested, your curriculum vitae (in English), high school diploma, and—if applicable—certificates from your university to the address of the person in charge.
