Ádám NÉMETHis a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute for Urban and Regional Research (ISR) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences since March 2022. He defended his doctoral theses with ‘summa cum laude’ evaluation in 2014 at the University of Pécs, Hungary. He published a number of articles in peer reviewed journals and gave more than thirty conference presentations in ten different countries. At his alma mater he participated in teaching of altogether 12 seminars and courses in Hungarian and English and he successfully applied for a number of third party funded prae and postdoctoral projects. Beside his employment contracts with the University of Pécs, the University of Sopron and the University of Vienna, he gained international experience at several further research institutions in Estonia, Latvia, Austria, and Germany too, including the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity in Göttingen.


Dr. Németh’s earlier investigations have been directed toward the international migration, the spatial patterns of ethno-cultural diversification and their potential impacts on social cohesion, mainly in Central Europe and the Baltic region. However, his scientific interests include recently the multidimensional concept of well-being too and its two-way causal relationship with migration. Currently he is working in the FWF-NKFIH joint project entitled MIGWELL “Well-being and Migration: The Hungary-Austria Migration Nexus”.
