Vita

Henning Silber heads the Survey Operations team at the Department of Survey Design and Methodology at GESIS, Mannheim. His team provides services and conducts research in both survey planning and implementation. He teaches, as a lecturer ("Privatdozent"), quantitative methods in the social sciences at the University of Mannheim, Germany. Since January 2022, Henning serves as the Publications Chair in the Council of the World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR). He holds a Magister (a combined Bachelor's and Master's) degree in Sociology and German Philology from the University of Göttingen, Germany. After finishing his degree, he taught at the Center of Methods in Social Sciences at the University of Göttingen. In 2015, he received a PhD in Social Sciences, with an emphasis on quantitative social research, from the University of Göttingen, during which he was awarded a three-year PhD Fellowship by the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes, 2012 to 2015). While pursuing his doctorate, Henning was a visiting scholar at the Political Psychology Research Group at the Department of Communication at Stanford University, USA (2012 to 2014). He completed his Habilitation in social science research methods in 2023 at the University of Mannheim. As a postdoc, he visited the Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin (USA), the Department of Methodology and Statistics at Utrecht University (the Netherlands), NORC at the University of Chicago (USA), and the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan (USA). He was a Fulbright Research Scholar at the Department of Public Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago (USA). He has been awarded several competitive research grants, including funding bodies such as the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Ministery of Education and Research (BMBF), the Institute for Policy and Civic Engagement (IPCE) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Association of Politics and Life Sciences (APLS), and the German Society for Online Research (DGOF). His research interests include survey methodology, political sociology, and the experimental social sciences.
