Tobias Schulze-Cleven

Schulze-Cleven comes to Harvard from a postdoctoral appointment sponsored by the German Research Foundation at the University of Bamberg. He received his PhD from UC Berkeley in 2009 and taught courses on comparative politics and political economy at Bamberg, Berkeley, and at Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen. His research focuses on processes of institutional liberalization in the creation and allocation of human capital. In a dissertation-based book project, he analyses diverging pathways to higher labor market flexibility in Germany and Denmark. He also has a strong interest in higher education, which he pursues by studying the international diffusion of market forces in university governance. While at CES, Schulze-Cleven will work on his book manuscript on the politics of labor market reform in Europe.
