He is particularly focusing on the transitional period from Empire to ‘nation state’ and this process’s implication for the Jewish population in Central/Eastern Europe. Rybak holds a B.A. in History from the University of Salzburg and finished his M.A. at the same university, writing his thesis on the split within the socialist-Zionist movement Poale Zion in the context of the European Revolution and the Balfour Declaration 1917–1921.

At the EUI, he is co-organising the interdisciplinary ‘Nationalism Working Group’. He is currently an external lecturer at the University of Salzburg’s Department of History and Centre for Jewish Cultural Studies.Before starting his studies he worked for five years as a social worker, supporting persons with mental and multiple disabilities.
