Call for 10 SALSA doctoral fellowships open

SALSA, the Graduate School of Analytical Sciences Adlershof at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, is announcing 10 doctoral fellowships to begin on April 1st, 2015. The program offers a structured, three-year period of multidisciplinary research combined with an integrated curriculum in Analytical Sciences.  
Applications will be accepted upon submission via our online application tool only (, which will be accessible from October 14th until November 9th, 2014. Graduate students (master’s degree or equivalent) in chemistry, biology, physics and related disciplines with an interest in Analytical Sciences as well as graduates with a background in natural sciences education are invited to apply.

Humboldt-Universität im THE World University Ranking weiter verbessert

In den Physical Sciences hat sich die Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin im Times Higher Education World University Ranking weltweit auf Platz 69 und in Deutschland auf Platz 6 hinter den Universitäten aus München, Göttingen und Heidelberg, der TU München und der Universität Bonn verbessert. Auch die Arts & Humanities und die Social Sciences zählen zu den Top 100. Die Humboldt-Universität als Ganze wird weltweit auf Platz 80 und in Deutschland auf Platz 4 geführt.



Janik Wolters awarded with the Carl-Ramsauer and the Humboldt-Prize

Dr. Janik Wolters received the Carl-Ramsauer Prize from the Physical Society of Berlin for his doctoral thesis, “Integrated Quantum Hybrid Systems,” which he did with Prof. Oliver Benson, who is a member of IRIS Adlershof. Dr. Wolter’s was able to present outstanding results from his optical studies of individual quantum systems in his thesis. The results will be, on the one hand, highly relevant for application in a future integrated quantum technology. On the other, the quantum zeno effect, which he was the first to observe on a single spin, illustrates special features in measurements of individually isolated quantum systems.

Moreover, the Humboldt-Universität has awarded janik Wolters the Humboldt-Prize for his outstanding doctoral thesis.
IRIS Adlershof would like to take this opportunity to heartily congratulate this young researcher.
