Florian Schulz, senior researcher at Bamberg's State Institute for Family Research (ifb), joined the Professorship of Demography as a research and teaching associate in 2016. He graduated and received his Ph.D. from Bamberg University, both in the field of sociology.

He is doing research on demographics, structures, change, and normative settings of family life in Germany and in international comparison. He puts special emphasis on daily routines of families over the life course as well as on issues of health and wellbeing in the context of family.

Current Research

Current research topics include the division of labor in older couples, changing gender ideologies and attitudes towards family life over the life course, and the possible connection of work-family-conflict and alcohol consumption of women and men.
