Lord Mayor Dr. Florian Janik

Curriculum vitae

I was born in Erlangen on March 6, 1980. After graduating from Ohm-Gymnasium and completing my civilian service with the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, I studied social sciences at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg from October 2000. I completed my studies in 2005 with a diploma.

Since the fall of 2005, I have been working as a research assistant at the Institute for Employment Research at the Federal Employment Agency in Nuremberg. In addition to my job, I wrote my doctoral thesis on "From a company perspective - labor market analyses using the IAB Establishment Panel" and completed it in February 2010 (summa cum laude).

I joined the SPD in 1998. From 1998 to 2002, I was chairman of the Erlangen district branch of the Jusos (Young Socialists in the SPD). I was elected to the city council for the first time in the 2002 local elections. In 2008, I took over the chairmanship of the SPD city council group. I have been Lord Mayor of the city of Erlangen since May 1, 2014.

I have two children, Lotta (born in 2009) and Max (born in 2011). In my free time, I like to play board and card games, go running and swimming and spend a lot of time with friends.
