Postdoctoral Scholarship by Daimler and Benz Foundation awarded to Sebastian O. Schneider
In February 2020, Sebastian O. Schneider of the Experimental Economics group was awarded a scholarship by Daimler and Benz Foundation for his project proposal to investigate smartphone usage and its consequences among adolescents. The scholarship comes with a subsidy amount of 40,000 euros, and is awarded to twelve postdoctoral researchers, junior professors or heads of junior research groups yearly, irrespective of their field of research. The objective of the scholarship is "to strengthen the autonomy and creativity of the next generation of scientists and to pave the way for the dedicated researchers’ professional careers during the productive phase following their doctorates", according to Daimler and Benz Foundation.
The MPI for Research on collective goods congratulates on this success, and is particularly proud that yet another member of the institute – Stefanie Egidy – is among this years' awardees.
