Admission of new young scientists to the Hector Fellow Academy
Nine young scientists have been accepted into the Academy for the next three years and are financially supported since fall 2022.
The topics of the doctoral projects are wide-ranging. For example, Xiaomeng Tian in the team of Hector Fellow Axel Meyer is investigating the question of how asymmetric traits develop in fish. Alexey Chervonnyy is mapping the human hypothalamus with Hector Fellow Katrin Amunts. Tobias Kraus is pursuing a PhD with Hector RCD Awardee Monika Schönauer. He is interested in how good and bad experiences are stored in memory. Katrin Lehle is creating simulations of galactic weather at Hector RCD Awardee Dylan Nelson. Finally, Maja Illig is pursuing a PhD in biophysics with Hector RCD Awardee Kerstin Göpfrich and will start her project in 2023.
For the young scientists, the funding from the HFA does not only mean a position as a research assistant including additional research funds. The young researchers benefit from an individual training program and become part of the network of top scientists of the Hector Fellow Academy.
Furthermore, Chris Byrohl, Lena Nitsch, Emine Rabia Sensevdi und Mai Tran were accepted as Associated Young Researchers.
Welcome to the Hector Fellow Academy and good luck with your PhD project!
