Reinier van Straten's research interests lie primarily in German-Jewish writing of the modernist period: his doctoral thesis investigates Nietzsche’s influence on Martin Buber, and he is also developing a new project on Franz Kafka and the Prague Circle. 

Reinier van Straten is a Teaching Fellow in German Language and Literature. He teaches German literature from the Enlightenment to the twentieth century, German cinema and German translation. Before joining UCL, he was a Stipendiary Lecturer at St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and a Retained Lecturer at The Queen's College, Oxford.

His research has taken him from Magdalen College, Oxford, to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he was a Leo Baeck Fellow in 2011-2012.
