Dr. Karen Lienkamp
Every year, approximately 50 Fellows are invited to work on their projects at FRIAS for 2 to 12 months in an intellectually stimulating environment. Fellows that have already been at FRIAS before can return to FRIAS for 2 to 6 weeks within the framework of the Alumni Programme, for example in order to finish a project. Furthermore, junior and senior researchers are regularly invited as guest researchers.
Our Research Focus profited enormously from the international team of Fellows and guest researchers at FRIAS.
Prof. Dr. Tobias Schätz, ERC Consolidator Grant 2015, Research Focus Quantum Transport 2014/15
She has received numerous competitive scholarships from various organizations, including the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes), Funds of the German Chemical Industry, The Medical Foundation, and the German Research Foundation (DFG). Next to her FRIAS Fellowship in December 2010 Karen Lienkamp was also awarded a DFG Emmy Noether grant.
