On 22 January 2016 sociologist Juliana Werneburg successfully defended her doctoral thesis at the Faculty of Sociology at Bielefeld University.

Juliana Werneburg submitted a dissertation entitled Entstehen berufliche Ungleichheiten zwischen Geschlechtern in Partnerschaften? - Commitment anstatt Verhandlung und Macht in partnerschaftlichen Tauschbeziehungen [Business and Career Inequalities between Genders Partnership Cohabitation]. The thesis addresses the question what effects the partnership cohabitation of women and men may have on their respective career prospects and career paths.
