DIPF offers diverse programmes for doctoral students and postdocs in educational research.

College for Interdisciplinary Educational Research

Logo Leibniz AssociationThe Leibniz programme for interdisciplinary educational research, College for Interdisciplinary Educational Research (CIDER), was founded in 2012. It is a programme for postdocs from the domains of sociology, economics, psychology and educational science who are engaged in empirical educational research and wish to move beyond disciplinary boundaries.

Besides studies with a focus on competence development and returns to education, the programme supports work on the question of how success in education is possible even despite adverse conditions.

For an initial period of 42 months, the new postdoc programme is financed by Jacobs Foundation and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The WZB is in charge of co-ordinating the programme, with DIPF and four other Leibniz institutes as participants: the German Institute for Economics (DIW), GESIS – Leibniz  Institute for Social Science, IPN – Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education and the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW).
