At a social science institute, the employees with their expertise, qualifications and motivation are the most important and strategically significant resource. It is therefore a key management task and objective at the IRS to create the best possible conditions for the development and commitment of all employees - in both academic and research-supporting areas.

The IRS understands itself as a place of learning, where overlaps of the goals of the Institute and the staff members´ personal career goals are productively searched for and exploited. This includes measures of individual support – for instance for doctoral candidates and post-docs – as well as achieving a work-life balance.

Research visits at the IRS

Extensive networking is also part of the further development of the institute and its employees.

With the "IRS Fellowship Programme", the IRS therefore supports stays of visiting scientists at the IRS.
