Since February 2014 Bettina Schuck has worked as Researcher under the direction of Prof. Dr. Jale Tosun on the CUPESSE project, which is funded by the European Union and dedicated to analyzing the causes and consequences of youth unemployment throughout Europe. Bettina Schuck has obtained degrees in industrial economics (B.A. 2009) and Sociology (B.A. 2011; M.A. 2013) across academic institutions in Ingolstadt, Bamberg, Almería and Mannheim. During her studies she gained research experience both as a student assistant for the National Education Panel Study (NEPS) and as a freelance associate for various projects in international marketing research. Following the attainment of her degree in Sociology, Bettina Schuck served as Research Assistant at the Mannheimer Zentrum für Europäische Sozialforschung (MZES) in a project under the direction of Prof. Michael Gebel, entitled “The Impact of the Economic Crisis on Youth Labour Markets in Europe.”


For her doctoral studies, Bettina Schuck investigates the consequences of intergenerational mobility on a comparative basis. More specifically, her research delves into the implications of upward and downward social mobility for young Europeans, as well as for moderating influences of different institutional contexts.
