University of Konstanz is awarded contract for COFUND proposal

01.06.2012
EU funding for the "Zukunftskolleg Incoming Fellowship Programme" (ZIF-Marie-Curie) totalling 6.24 million €

As one of three universities in Germany, the Zukunftskolleg of the University of Konstanz has successfully solicited co-financing from the EU programme "Marie Curie Actions COFUND" in the amount of 6.24 million euros. The thus created "Zukunftskolleg Incoming Fellowship Programme" (ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme) extends the existing fellowship programme of the Zukunftskolleg with a further international component.

With the ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme, the infrastructures of the Zukunftskolleg will be opened further to a global audience in accordance with the internationalisation activities of the University. At the same time, its guidelines that promote the mobility of young scientists and researchers, also offer the possibility to bring back outstanding German researchers from abroad. Over the course of five years, two-year (postdoctoral fellowships) and five-year fellowships (research fellowships) will be awarded to international scientists.

“With this programme we have a new offer to attract the best young researchers from abroad to the University of Konstanz. We can thus increase the global visibility of the University, strengthen the international research profile further and establish the Zukunftskolleg as a leading centre of training of top young researchers in Europe,” says Prof. Dr. Giovanni Galizia, director of the Zukunftskolleg. Together with the Research Support of the University, established by the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments, Galizia set the COFUND proposal into motion.

Part of the application requirements for the ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme is that participants may not have spent more than twelve months in Germany the past three years. "This means that scientists, for example, can apply who are already at the University of Konstanz. They benefit from the scientific community of the Zukunftskolleg and receive an additional 3,000 euros per year for research. So at the same time, we can promote the integration of the Zukunftskolleg into the university structures,” explains Dr. Stefanie Preuss from Research Support at the University of Konstanz, who developed the programme together with the Zukunftskolleg and wrote the proposal.

The ZIF-Marie-Curie Programme will be aimed at young scientists and researchers from all disciplines who combine a high degree of teamwork and leadership qualities and have the potential to significantly advance their research field. Prerequisite for applying is a doctoral degree, excellence in research and the ability to independently carry out a research project.

Candidates for the five-year fellowships must also have either raised their own or third-party funding or verify the funding of their own position through the University. The ZIF-Marie-Curie Fellows are fully integrated into the Zukunftskolleg as well as in their respective departments within the University. A tender for the Fellowships will be made soon.

The Zukunftskolleg is a building block of the institutional strategy of the University of Konstanz within the framework of the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments. It is a research institution of the University of Konstanz for the promotion of young researchers. It maintains the dialogue across all subjects and generations through which the Fellows and Senior Fellows of the Zukunftskollleg are faced with ways of thinking, research approaches and methods from other disciplines.

Im Focus: Vorstoß ins Innere der Atome

Mit Hilfe einer neuen Lasertechnologie haben es Physiker vom Labor für Attosekundenphysik der LMU und des MPQ geschafft, Attosekunden-Lichtblitze mit hoher Intensität und Photonenenergie zu produzieren. Damit konnten sie erstmals die Interaktion mehrere Photonen in einem Attosekundenpuls mit Elektronen aus einer inneren atomaren Schale beobachten konnten.

Wer die ultraschnelle Bewegung von Elektronen in inneren atomaren Schalen beobachten möchte, der benötigt ultrakurze und intensive Lichtblitze bei genügend...

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

Eine Gruppe von Forschern um Andrea Cavalleri am Max-Planck-Institut für Struktur und Dynamik der Materie (MPSD) in Hamburg hat eine Methode demonstriert, die es erlaubt die interatomaren Kräfte eines Festkörpers detailliert auszumessen. Ihr Artikel Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, nun online in Nature veröffentlich, erläutert, wie Terahertz-Laserpulse die Atome eines Festkörpers zu extrem hohen Auslenkungen treiben können.

Die zeitaufgelöste Messung der sehr unkonventionellen atomaren Bewegungen, die einer Anregung mit extrem starken Lichtpulsen folgen, ermöglichte es der...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
