Would you and your children like to take part in one of our studies?

Then send us an e-mail: iSearch@mpib-berlin.mpg.de. We are always looking for children between the ages of two and fourteen who would like to participate in our studies. We include potential participants in our database and invite them to our laboratory on Dillenburger Straße. The playful experiments are tailored to the age of the children.

The MPRG iSearch welcomes students of Psychology, Cognitive Science, Education, Computer Science and related disciplines interested in collaborating with us with the goal of writing a Bachelor or Master thesis. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Development of information search strategies
  • Ecological learning and adaptiveness of active learning strategies
  • Active learning in the social domain

Internships

The MPRG iSearch regularly provides opportunities for research internships. Internships give students in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Education, Computer Science or any other discipline investigating information search and active learning processes the opportunity to gain hands on experience with research. Research interns work on well-defined tasks related to our ongoing research projects. They do so in close collaboration with our researchers and team members. Internships typically last 3 months.

To apply, please send a statement of research interest, a curriculum vitae, high-school diploma (Abiturzeugnis), and any other related certificates electronically as a single PDF file to Sylvaine von Franqué:

For inquiries about the research internships, please contact Ms. Rothe (, phone: 0049-30-82406-235).
