Steffen Künn is Associate Professor at the School of Business and Economics at the Maastricht University.

Before joining Maastricht University, he held positions at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Bonn and the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) in Berlin.

He received his master degree in economics from the Free University Berlin in 2008 and a PhD in economics from the University of Potsdam in 2012.

His main research interests include applied labor economics and in particular the evaluation of labor market policy. Beside the evaluation of traditional programs of active labor market policy (such as wage subsidies, training etc), he is particularly interested in the effectiveness of programs which aim at promoting self-employment among the unemployed as well as programs encouraging the geographical mobility of job seekers. In addition, he recently got interested in the effects of environmental conditions (indoor conditions) on human health and labor market outcomes.

Steffen Künn joined IZA as a Research Fellow in November 2015.
