Jeremy Kuhnle is a doctoral candidate at the University of Mannheim and a research assistant at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES), Department A, in the project “Occupational Licensing – Between Professional Closure and Labour Market Integration” under the supervision of Prof. Henning Hillmann and Prof. Christina Gathmann. He received his Master of Arts in Sociology from the University of Mannheim (2014) and a Bachelor of Arts in both Sociology and German studies from Indiana University – Fort Wayne (2011). Prior to joining the MZES, he worked as a research assistant at the Chemnitz University of Technology, in the project “Life Course and Family Dynamics in a Comparative Perspective”.

Jeremy’s main research interest is social inequality; how it is created, fostered, and reproduced. Using an economic sociological perspective, he focuses on the influence of the social world, its actors and their relations, on economic action and outcomes. Particularly, how social processes (re)establish economic and social inequalities. Using statistical methods of causal inference, his research aims to uncover the mechanisms that drive these (structural) inequalities in both the economy and society with a specific focus on the forces and outcomes of migration.

His current dissertation project investigates the effect of occupational deregulation on the labor market outcomes of women and immigrants in Germany. A second project that he is also working on (in collaboration with Philipp Brandt and Henning Hillmann) examines the effect of  career patterns and organizational structure on immigrants’ career trajectories and earnings.
