After finishing her studies, she worked at the Research Date Centre of the German Pension Insurance in Berlin (FDZ-RV) in the course of a data matching project („BASiD – Biographical data of selected social insurance agencies in Germany“) in cooperation with the Research Institute of the Federal Employment Agency (IAB). Then, she was granted a doctoral scholarship by the Research Network on Old-Age Security (FNA). Her thesis (work in progress) deals with questions of reduced earning capacity and social inequality in a biographical context. Additionally, she was part of a project whose aim was to implement a web-based research environment for scientists who work on the third report on the socioeconomic development in Germany (soeb 3). Janine Lange joined the iFQ in August 2014.
