Welcome to Frank Bandau!

We warmly welcome Dr. Frank Bandau, who will be filling the professorship for Policy Analysis and Political Economy at the TU Kaiserslautern from this winter semester.

Frank Bandau studied political science, economics and media studies in Braunschweig. He received his doctorate with a thesis on welfare state structures and party effects and has since been employed as a research assistant at the universities of Bamberg and Heidelberg. Between 2019 and 2022, he filled the professorship for political science, in particular international comparative policy analysis, at the Otto Friedrich University of Bamberg. His scientific work centers on comparative welfare state research and party politics (with a focus on the crisis of social democracy).

We wish him a good start at TUK and will continue reporting news from the professorship here as usual.
