Right now, about 30 students are working on their theses at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR). Their doctoral degrees will be awarded by various partner universities and their research topics are broad and cover many areas of demography – from migration to fertility to health. 






Since 2021, five PhD Students associated with the MPIDR obtained their doctorates. Their research areas were in mortality, fertility and population health.

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock is one of the leading demographic research centers in the world. It's part of the Max Planck Society, the internationally renowned German research society.
