He is also a co-author (with Paul M. Sniderman, Michael Bang Petersen, and Rune Stubager) of the book Paradoxes of Liberal Democracy from Princeton University Press.

Rune Slothuus is the Principal Investigator of the project “When and How Political Parties Influence Public Opinion Formation” (with Jamie Druckman from Northwestern University and Thomas Leeper from London School of Economics), funded by a Sapere Aude: DFF-Starting Grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research. He is also a Co-PI and senior researcher within the POLIS research unit, studying party competition and public opinion dynamics.

In 2015, Slothuus received the Erik Erikson Early Career Award from the International Society of Political Psychology. His work has also been recognized by best paper awards from American Political Science Association, International Communication Association, and International Society of Political Psychology, and Slothuus was the first recipient of the Faculty of Social Science Research Prize in 2009.
