Klaus Müllen becomes new Gutenberg Research Fellow
In recognition of his scientific achievements, Professor Dr. Klaus Müllen, emeritus director at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has been appointed by the President of the Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU) as a Gutenberg Research Fellow for a period of three years. The ceremony will take place at the “Hochschule für Musik” on May 2, 2016, during the annual ceremony of the Gutenberg Research College (GRC).
The GRC fellowship assures each fellow first class research conditions. It is generously endowed. Funds for academic personnel as well as for material expenses are available. The GRC fellows are expected to offer their expertise to young academics – for example with Research Training Groups or the Gutenberg Academy. In the long term, the fellows contribute to the elaboration of perspectives and strategies concerning the future development of the Johannes Gutenberg University.
The GRC, established in 2007, serves as a central strategic instrument to promote cutting-edge research at JGU. The GRC runs an annual budget of €2 million, provided in equal parts by the State and by JGU.
