I am hiring two new post-docs to work on my ERC project on the mass politics of disintegration: one with a specialization in public opinion research, and one specialized on text-as-data methods. Please apply! Review of applications will begin on February 20.


Big news: My research project  “The mass politics of disintegration” (DISINTEGRATION) will be funded with an ERC consolidator grant! DISINTEGRATION examines the consequences of the current popular backlash against international cooperation and specifically focuses on how the other member states of an international institution respond when one member state attempts to unilaterally change the terms of or terminate an existing international agreement on the basis of a strong popular mandate, such as a referendum.
