Mainz University receives approval for an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship in Physics
Date:10/30/2013

In response to an application submitted by Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), theoretical physicist Professor Jairo Sinova from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, USA has been selected for an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship, one of the most eminent and highest endowed research posts in Germany. Since 2008, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation has awarded up to ten professorships each year to internationally acclaimed foreign academics who would like to continue their work in Germany and thus contribute to the competitiveness of the country as a research hub. Academics working in theoretical fields receive funding of up to EUR 3.5 million for up to five years.

Jairo Sinova is considered to be one of the leading specialists in the area of theoretical solid-state physics. At Mainz University, he will be appointed as a Professor of Theoretical Physics focusing on Electronic and Magnetic Properties of Condensed Matter. In the context of the extended funding provided to the JGU Graduate School of Excellence "Materials Science in Mainz" in the 2012 Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments, this research area was created in order to promote work in this field.

"I am delighted the Alexander von Humboldt Professorship scheme has made it possible to appoint an internationally renowned scientist like Professor Jairo Sinova to a position in Mainz. His research activities will undoubtedly significantly raise the profile of the Rhineland-Palatinate science hub and enhance its international competitiveness," said Minister of Science, Doris Ahnen. "This award also demonstrates that the state of Rhineland-Palatinate is on the right track with its policy of targeted funding of materials research under the Rhineland-Palatinate Research Initiative."

"This Humboldt Professorship represents a major success for Physics at Mainz, which is internationally renowned with major research centers such as the Cl
