Edgar Treischl received his diploma in sociology from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich in 2013, where he specialized in "methods of empirical social research" and "educational sociology". In his thesis he examined the effect of systematic sampling error due to self-selection in students’ evaluations of teaching (SET). Since 2013 Edgar was a research assistant at the Chair of Methods of Empirical Social Research of Prof. Dr. Katrin Auspurg at the University of Munich. Between 2013 and 2015 he was an employee of the academic dean Prof. Brüderl in Munich. Here Edgar was responsible for the SET at the Faculty of Social Sciences. In 2015 we received a full scholarship from the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) at the University of Mannheim.
