Since October 2022 Rona Geffen has been a post-doctoral researcher in the Chair for Sociology with a Focus on Empirical Educational Research at Goethe University. In her research, she studies the life courses of young adults with a special focus on the role of their social origin and the opportunity structure for inequality in their education and the transition from school to work. Before joining the chair, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the “Cluster of Excellence” SCRIPTS at the Free University of Berlin (2021-2022), a guest researcher in the Department of Microsociology at Humboldt University of Berlin and a researcher in the Research Center for Poverty and Social Exclusion at the University of Haifa (2022). She received her PhD from the Chair for Social Stratification and Social Policy at Goethe University (2016-2021). Her research interests include social stratification, life course, education and careers, migration and integration, social policy and quantitative research methods.
