Julius Reimer, M. A., is a junior researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI). Currently, he predominantly works on the project “Journalism and Its Audience: the Re-Figuration of a Relationship and Its Influence on News Production”, which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The project investigates how journalists’ changing relationship to their audience affects their work and the news stories they produce.

Julius Reimer’s research in general concentrates on journalism in times of digitisation and datafication. He is particularly interested in the changing journalism-audience relationship, start-ups and new organisational models, innovative reporting styles, automation, transparency as well as (personal) branding in journalism.
He is one of the three chairs of the German Young Scholars Network in Journalism Research (NaJoFo).

Julius Reimer studied communication science, economic policy and sociology at the Westfälische Wilhelms-University in Münster and at the Università della Svizzera italiana in Lugano. During his studies, he worked as a student assistant for Prof. Dr. Christoph Neuberger. From November 2009 to September 2011, he was a research assistant for Prof. Dr. Klaus Meier at the Institute for Journalism of the TU Dortmund university, doing research as well as teaching. Since October 2011 he has been working at the Hans Bredow Institute, amongst others, on the projects “(Re-)Discovering the Audience”, “Personal Branding in Journalism”, “Journalism Elsewhere”, “SCAN”, “When Data Become News”, “Tinder the City”, “What Journalists Should Do – and What They Want to Do” and in the research network “Transforming Communications”.
