The position is available from the 01st of October 2017 as part of the research project "Religion and morality policy – An analysis of the influence of religious groups during the implementation stage“, which is headed by Professor Christoph Knill und Professor Christian Joppke (University of Berne).

The focus is on six Western European countries with different churchstate regimes and distinct legal provisions for non-immigrant and immigrant religions, in particular Islam (i.e., Denmark, Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Belgium and France). The German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Swiss Research Foundation
(SNF) provide funding for the project jointly for a time period of 3 years.
