Vita

Bernhard Miller is a Science Manager trained as a Political Scientist at Mannheim and Johns Hopkins Universities. His research interests are comparative (informal) institutions, conflict resolution, coalitions and parties. After his PhD he joined the Wissenschaftsrat (German Council of Science and Humanities) where he worked on the accreditation of private universities, financing of research infrastructures, the research rating and on standardizing a research core dataset. He embraces data analytics (R in particular) as a welcome contribution to science management.

At GESIS he has previously worked on the Presidential Staff as a coordinator for, i.e, the institute's boards and the NFDI application of KonsortSWD. From November 2019 until September 2020 he acted as pro tempore head of the Knowledge Transfer Department.

Since October 2020 he has taken over responsibilities as the Coordinator of KonsortSWD within NFDI. In this function he is in charge of setting up and running monitoring and controlling of the Konsortium's performance as an infrastructure service provider. He also liaises with partners within KonsortSWD, other consortia and the NFDI Directorate and manages KonsortSWD's contracts and the application process for network consolidation (new partners).
