Dr. Johanna Gereke admitted to "Die Junge Akademie"

High honour for MZES Fellow Dr Johanna Gereke: the sociologist has been appointed a member of Die Junge Akademie, which is supported by the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. Die Junge Akademie aims to foster academic, especially interdisciplinary, discourse among outstanding young academics and scholars and to promote initiatives at the intersection of academia and society.

Johanna Gereke wants to contribute to Die Junge Akademie mainly in three areas: the development of creative formats of scientific communication, the promotion of Open Science in research and teaching, and the improvement of young academics’ working conditions, especially in reconciling work and family life.

Die Junge Akademie constantly counts only 50 members from a wide range of disciplines. Every year, ten of its members leave and ten are newly elected for a five-year period. They can access a central research budget, which is used for scientific and artistic projects, as well as a personal budget. Prerequisites for membership include an outstanding dissertation or artistic work.

Dr Johanna Gereke has been a research fellow at the MZES since the end of 2018 and focuses on integration, migration and discrimination. Among others, she is director of the project "Pretty Integrated? The Causes and Consequences of Immigrants’ Physical Attractiveness on Integration Outcomes", funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
