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.
