Stefanie Doebler

Bowland North



Research overview

I joined academia having worked for 12 years as a qualified nurse, mainly on oncology and geriatrics hospital wards. This work inspired my interest in the sociological study of life-course disadvantage. After completing a research master’s degree in Sociology and a PhD in Social Change, both on funded research studentships, I worked on research projects applying large-scale surveys and linked population data to the study of inequalities in health, caring, and life-course outcomes. I joined Lancaster University in 2019.

I am a member of the Data Science Institute at Lancaster, the Centre for Alternatives to Social and Economic Inequalities and the Centre for Family Justice Research.

Externally, I am a member of the British Sociological Association, Radical Statistics (Radstats), the Royal Statistical Society and since 2022 a fellow of the HEA.

I have been a peer reviewer for UKRI and the Wellcome Trust, and I am an editorial board member of Sociological Research Online. I have peer reviewed for various academic journals such as Sociology, American Sociological Review, International Sociology, Ageing & Society, Ethnic and Racial Studies.

PhD supervision

I am interested in taking on supervision of PhD projects that use quantitative statistical or mixed methods to examine social problems. I am also interested in PhD projects looking at inequalities, ageing, health and mental health and projects pursuing comparative cross-national or cross-regional survey analysis of social attitudes and religion.
