From Harvard to Hannover - Hendrik Weimer‘s career
Dr. Hendrik Weimer studied physics in Stuttgart and Durham. After obtaining his doctorate, he worked at Harvard University and the Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Cambridge, USA, until he transferred to Leibniz Universität Hannover in 2012.
During the “Freigeist” Fellowship’s first call, Weimer received a grant of 900,000 Euro. The funding program is directed toward junior scientists with exceptional research approaches and original ideas. Therefore his application was successful.
