Postdoctoral Research Fellow, ADSOM project
Javier Martínez-Cantó joined IBEI as a postdoctoral research fellow with the ADSOM project, led by Laura Chaqués-Bonafont. Before, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Konstanz. He obtained his doctorate at the University of Bamberg–Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences. His dissertation received the Juan Linz Prize from the Centre for Political and Constitutional Studies and the Hans-Löwel-Preise from the University of Bamberg. His research lies at the intersection between political representation, party politics, and the territorial distribution of power. Substantially, most of his work addresses how the personal characteristics of political elites interact with different institutional settings to produce different outcomes in terms of descriptive and substantive representation. His research has been published in Comparative Political Studies, Party Politics, Legislative Studies Quarterly, or the Journal of Elections, Public Opinion and Parties.
