Managing and supporting research-associated activities

Research coordination supports the managing director (GfD) and the institute's staff in various scientific and organizational aspects of research. Main thematic areas are:

  • scientific board meetings (e.g. scientific advisory board; scientific executive council)
  • scientific reporting (e.g. SAB) and communication (e.g. seminars & colloquia)
  • scientific publications (e.g. library)
  • third-party grants (applications and management) & awards
  • service facilities & infrastructure
  • technology transfer
  • press & public relations, outreach
  • recruitments, BGC-internal structure and organization
  • coordination with MPS headquarters


The research coordinator is supported by his team:

Many goals are achieved in close cooperation with Petra Bauer (Administration) and her team, as well as Silvana Schott (layout/design and programing) and Bertram Smolny's Scientific Computing service group.
