LIfBi junior research group leader Malte Reichelt takes up professorship

Dr. Malte Reichelt has accepted an appointment as Junior Professor for Computational Social Science with a focus on Social Dynamics at Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and has been working there since June 1. Previously, he was head of the Emmy Noether Junior Research Group "GenDiT" at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) in Bamberg. Even after his move to FAU, Malte Reichelt and the junior research group will still be partly based at LIfBi and will continue their research work started there.

Malte Reichelt conducts research on the topic of gender inequalities in the labor market and the education system. Under the project title "GenDiT," the Emmy Noether Group funded by the German Research Foundation is looking at how and under what conditions the digitization of occupational fields affects gender inequality. The aim is to uncover and understand larger theoretical connections that exist between structural changes such as digitization and social inequality in education, choice of study, employment and pay. In particular, the role of organizations and institutions (for example, schools or companies) will be examined.

LIfBi Director Cordula Artelt: "Malte Reichelt is an outstanding scientist! We wish him all the best, continued success and are very pleased to be able to continue our successful collaboration together."

After Reichelt's move to FAU, the Emmy Noether group "GenDiT" will continue to be located at LIfBi as well. The research work started at the beginning of 2023 can thus be continued in the coming years in close connection with the institute and the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS).
