Henriette Herz Scouting Programm in experimenteller Teilchenphysik

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation has appointed Katerina Lipka from the DESY Particle Physics Department as a Henriette Herz Scout. Every year, the Humboldt Foundation selects up to 40 scouts in a competitive peer-review process. A task of the scout is to attract particularly gifted scientific talents for Germany. In the focus are researchers whose academic record qualifies them to be granted a Humboldt Research Fellowship but who have not yet taken part in the application process.

The scout has the opportunity to recommend three research talents from abroad for a Humboldt Research Fellowship to implement their own ideas in a German laboratory, in this case at DESY in Hamburg. After formal approval, the fellowships are granted directly without an additional time-consuming review process. The first fellow is expected to be nominated in 2022.

The research group of Katerina Lipka investigates the fundamental structure and interaction of matter and searches for New Physics with the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The group is leading precision measurements of the fundamental parameters of the Standard Model of particle physics, the strong coupling constant and the mass of the top quark, and contributes to the upgrade of the CMS outer tracker. This research is supported by the Helmholtz first-time appointment program as a joined professorship of DESY and the University of Wuppertal.
