Link to the jobs:
The Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg (IFSH) is seeking to fill up to 8 positions as senior researcher/researcher

within its research and consulting project Arms Control, Disarmament and Risk Technologies. The project is conducted with financial support from the German Federal Foreign Office. The positions, to be filled as soon as possible, are remunerated in accordance with pay category 13 or 14 (65-100 %) of the public sector pay agreement of the City of Hamburg (TV-AVH) and limited to 1.5-4 years. Subject to the availability of funds, the duration and scope of each of the positions depend on the qualifications required and the characteristics of the individual roles.

The IFSH is an interdisciplinary research institute at the University of Hamburg and is supported by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. The research activities of the IFSH concentrate on current developments and challenges to peace and security with a focus on the Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian areas. The transfer of knowledge to decision makers in politics and society is a core aspect of the institute’s work.

We are looking for ambitious researchers and experts who enjoy working in a dynamic environment at the intersection of cutting-edge research and policy-related consultancy. In the coming years, the IFSH will renew and significantly expand its existing expertise in arms control, disarmament, non-proliferation, and emerging technologies. Toward that end, the IFSH will cooperate closely with the German Federal Foreign Office as well as with international research institutions and think tanks. The aim is to establish a leading international hub for interdisciplinary research and policy-relevant work on the following issues:


Arms Dynamics and Arms Control of Weapons of Mass Destruction (1-2 positions as researcher/senior researcher)

Emerging Technologies and Preventive Arms Control (1-2 positions as researcher/senior researcher)

Conventional Arms Control (1-2 positions as researcher/senior researcher)

Political Economy of European Security (1 position as researcher/senior researcher)

Future of European Peace and Security Policy (1 position as researcher/senior researcher)


The IFSH actively supports women in their careers and is therefore particularly interested in applications from women in areas in which they are underrepresented. If they have the required qualifications, women are given priority in these areas in line with the Hamburg Equal Opportunities Act. We also encourage applications from individuals with disabilities.
