My name is Magnus Schoeller and I received a PhD in Political and Social Sciences from the EUI. In September 2016, I moved to the Institute for European Integration Research (EIF), University of Vienna, as a  postdoctoral researcher. Prior to my PhD, I obtained a Master of Research (MRes) from the EUI in 2013, and a Master degree (M.A.) with distinction from the University of Tübingen, Germany, in 2012.

My research interests cover all aspects of European politics and, in particular, the EU economic and monetary policy. I have worked on decision-making and political leadership during the Eurozone crisis, Germany’s role in the Euro Area, the Franco-German relationship, and the empowerment of the European Parliament in the Economic and Monetary Union. Parts of my research appeared in the Journal of European Public Policy and Global Policy.

Alongside my own research at the EUI and EIF, I was involved in a research project financed by the European Parliament and led by Professor Adrienne Héritier on “The European Parliament as a driving force of constitutionalisation“, and I am collaborating as a research associate in a project on the governance of the EU financial market, which is funded by the Swedish Research Council. Next to my research activities, I have taught courses on International Relations and European integration at the universities of Düsseldorf and Vienna.
