Philipp Gerlach Awarded Doctorate

Philipp Gerlach was awarded his doctorate from the University of Cologne on June 12, 2012. In his dissertation on the recruitment and career development of engineers in the French and German automotive industry ("Der Wert der Arbeitskraft: Bewertungsinstrumente und Auswahlpraktiken im Arbeitsmarkt für Ingenieure in Frankreich und Deutschland"), he explores how the national context of institutions such as the educational system, labor market intermediaries and the market for human resource consulting interacts with organizational patterns to shape firms’ recruitment and selection practices. Gerlach was a doctoral student at the MPIfG's IMPRS-SPCE from October 2008 to March 2012 and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the MPIfG.
