- About us
The Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) is a research and analysis institute established in 2013 and based in Berlin. MERICS conducts independent, practical and policy-oriented research on China. MERICS provides the public with insight into China through up-to-date research and communication. It informs decision-makers in politics, business and society and acts as a key contact for the media. MERICS is an initiative of Stiftung Mercator, a major private European foundation.
This research program analyzes the political challenges posed by increasing social friction and focuses on two main issues: on the one hand, chances and limitations for societal organization in the context of increasing surveillance and control; on the other hand, the struggle over information control and credibility between state and society paying particular attention to the interplay between social networks and state-controlled media.
If you have gained exceptional expertise in societal organization or media policy in China based on years of research and/or professional experience, and if you are willing to share and deepen it in cooperation with MERICS, we welcome you to apply. With your experience, you will contribute actively to the independent research of one of the largest international research institutes on contemporary China.
Please send your application documents (#1: letter of motivation (2-3 pages) referring explicitly to the respective MERICS research program; #2: Curriculum Vitae; #3: list of publications or list of equivalent analytical qualifications based on professional experience) to Marie Hoffmann: marie.hoffmann(at)merics.de. marie.hoffmann(at)merics.de.
