Miriam Schader is a senior research fellow / group leader at the Department of Socio-cultural Diversity. Her research focuses on the recent refugee immigration to Germany.

She was also part of the pilot project ‘Addressing the diversity of needs and aspirations of asylum-seekers’ (Feb. 2016 – Feb. 2017). Miriam received her binational PhD from Göttingen University and Sciences Po in Paris. Her thesis on the religious and political mobilisation of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa in Berlin and Paris won the Augsburger Wissenschaftspreis für interkulturelle Studien (Augsburg Academic Prize for Intercultural Studies). Before returning to Göttingen, Miriam was a postdoctoral researcher at Münster University and worked as a project manager for the Robert Bosch Foundation in the area of ‘migration and integration’.
