Prof. Dr. Immanuel Bloch – Simulated Quantum Worlds
Hector Fellow Immanuel Bloch is one of the leading researchers in the field of quantum physics. He investigates ultracold quantum gases at temperatures near absolute zero. Prof. Bloch’s research in this new interdisciplinary field opens up innovative and highly promising approaches – they could i.a. form the basis for novel quantum computers.
Prof. Bloch is member of the Hector Fellow Academy. This young science academy is an interdisciplinary network for top-level research and fosters cutting-edge research across institutions and research fields. The Hector Fellow Academy nurtures innovative interdisciplinary projects between renowned professors of different STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) as well as medicine and psychology. Besides, the academy promotes young scientists. It offers fully-funded PhD positions for ambitious candidates who carry out a self-developed research project. By bringing together outstanding scientists across institutions and scientific disciplines, the Hector Fellow Academy creates impulses for innovative projects, initiates socio-political discourses and contributes to solving global challenges. At the same time, it strengthens Germany’s position as a location for science.
