Andreas Jozwiak received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Comparative Politics and Methodology. His research focuses on social policy, gender, and public opinion in advanced democracies, some of which has been recently published in Social Politics.As a Max Weber Fellow, Andreas will develop his research agenda through several ongoing projects. The first is interested in changes to Continental European family policies that afford parents greater flexibility as to how they reconcile work and care. This project examines the effects of these reforms on education-based inequalities in couples’ division of labour and earnings based on German panel data. A second project examines the role of sexism and gendered status threats in shaping support for (gendered) social policy among European publics using original survey experiments.Expertise for Teaching and Mentoring of Ph.D. Researchers Andreas has extensive teaching experience, having taught numerous courses as instructor of record in Comparative and American politics. In 2018, his efforts in the classroom were recognized with UNC’s Undergraduate Student Teaching Award. As a graduate student, he and a co-teacher received a grant to develop a new service-learning course on race and voting rights in the American South. As a part of this class, students worked with racial equity and voting rights organizations in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to serve the local community, monitor board of elections meetings, and write policy briefs on pending voting rights legislation.
