Niels Bohr Institute gets top researcher from Harvard
Date:1/10/2012

A grant of 38 million Danish Kroner from the VILLUM FOUNDATION paves the way for a brand new professorship at the Niels Bohr Institute for the world's leading researcher in the field of quantum physics, Professor Charles Marcus.

After a lot of spadework to find and attract a physicist of international standing the Niels Bohr Institute can now look forward to receiving a grant of 38 million DKK from the VILLUM FOUNDATION. The grant has allowed for the creation of a permanent position for the world-leading researcher in the field of quantum electronics, Professor Charles Marcus. Charles Marcus is coming from a position as a professor at one of the world's leading universities, Harvard University in the USA.

Entirely new funding possibilities in Denmark

The grant represents the first instance in Denmark where a private foundation is financing the creation of a permanent professorship known in the English-speaking university world as 'endowed chairs'.

"This is a great new opportunity that the VILLUM FOUNDATION is demonstrating. This generous donation from the foundation represents a new way to attract exceptionally talented researchers to Danish universities by guaranteeing researchers permanent and attractive employment conditions," says Professor John Renner Hansen, Head of the Niels Bohr Institute.

When the institute contacted Professor Marcus to offer him the new Villum Kann Rasmussen Professorship with the huge grant in hand, he was not difficult to persuade. A few years ago, Professor Marcus had a very successful guest stay at the Niels Bohr Institute, so he was very familiar with the institute and its international research environment. The ability to hire a researcher of Professor Marcus' international rank paved the way in late 2011 to attract funds for a new centre from the Danish National Research Foundation, the 'Center for Quantum Devices', under the leadership of Professor Marcus.
