Feodor Lynen Fellow - Dr. Johannes Erdmann

August 23, 2012

Dr. Johannes Erdmann will come to Yale as a Feodor Lynen Fellow starting in September 2012. Johannes graduated from the University of Goettingen in May 2012 with the highest possible honors (“summa cum laude”). The Fellowship is sponsored by the Humboldt Foundation and covers 2/3 of Johannes’ salary. He will work with Prof. Paul Tipton and Prof. Tobias Golling on the search for new physics including the Higgs boson at the energy frontier with the ATLAS detector. The Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship allows postdoctoral researchers from Germany to carry out a long-term research project abroad in cooperation with an academic host who has already been sponsored by the Humboldt Foundation (Tobias Golling was a Feodor Lynen Fellow from 2005-2007 working at Berkeley Lab.)
