Principal Investigators

The CRC 1261 involves 22 principal investigators, from which eight hold full professorships, six hold associate professorships and seven are in a wider sense junior group leaders. Prof. Deuschl has retired but holds the first senior professor position at Kiel University and has a permission contract with UKSH / Kiel University to undertake the work described within this proposal. Prof. Faupel successfully applied for a shift of his retirement to ensure his participation over the full second funding period. Prof. Bahr and Prof. Rieger were appointed as additional junior and associate professors in electrical engineering, respectively, to strengthen the activities of the CRC. As a consequence, the CRC consists of a team comprising of well-renowned senior scientists in combination with highly qualified younger scientists and thus guarantees a well-balanced expertise for the suggested work program. Eight of the contributing principal investigators belong to the Institute for Materials Science, five are within the Institute of Electrical and Information Technology, four are with the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel, one is with the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics, two are with the Leibniz-Institute for Science and Mathematics Education in Kiel, and two are with the Fraunhofer Institute of Silicon Technology in Itzehoe. Thus, the team represents the broad interdisciplinary competence that is a key signature of this CRC.
