Professor Richard Casten awarded a Mercator Guest Professorship by the DFG

October 1, 2007

Richard Casten (D. Allan Bromley Professor of Physics) has been awarded a Mercator Guest Professorship by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, The German Research Association, which he will use at the University of Köln while on sabbatical in 2008.

Mercator Fellowships enable intensive, long-term project-based collaboration between researchers from both domestic and foreign institutions. Although Mercator Fellows are on-site for only part of the project, they remain in contact with the project team members once their research stay is over. Foreign Mercator Fellowship holders are awarded the title of Mercator Fellows in recognition of their dedication.
