I have been a member of the faculty of the International Max Planck Research School on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy (IMPRS-SPCE) since 2008 and adjunct professor in the University of Cologne's Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences since 2012, where I have also been a member of the associated faculty of its Cologne Center for Comparative Politics (CCCP) since 2013.
As chair of the MPIfG's publications committee I am responsible for the Institute's publication series (MPIfG Books, Discussion Papers) and for the review processes associated with them. I am also a member of the management committee and part of the supervisory committees for several doctoral dissertation projects.
Within the German Political Science Association (DVPW/GSPA) I am involved in particular in the Political Economy section, of which I was also a board member between 2006 and 2012. Since 2015 I have been a regular contributor to the heterodox online economic and political magazine Makroskop and am one of two co-chairs of the advisory board. I am also a member of the advisory board of the journal der moderne staat.
