Date:3/22/2011

This release is available in German.

The new prizewinners of the most important award for early career researchers in Germany have been chosen. The selection committee appointed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research have selected two young female and four young male researchers for the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize 2011. The prizes go to:

Dr. Swantje Bargmann, engineering sciences, Technical University of Dortmund

Dr. Markus Friedrich, modern history, University of Frankfurt/Main

Dr. Christian Hackenberger, chemistry, Free University of Berlin

Dr. Thorsten Holz, computer science, Ruhr University of Bochum

Dr. Moritz Kerz, mathematics, University of Duisburg-Essen

Dr. Henrike Manuwald, literature, University of Freiburg

For the 2011 prize, a total of 145 candidates from all research areas were nominated more than ever in the history of the award. "This shows both how many outstanding early career researchers there are at German universities and how attractive the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize is," said the chair of the selection committee, DFG Vice President Professor Dorothea Wagner, after the decision.

Of those nominated, 22 were put on the short list, from which the current prize recipients were finally chosen. "What is remarkable is also their young age," Wagner added. "Four of them are under or have just turned 30 and have thus acquired an outstanding qualification and a substantial independent research profile at a very young age," said the DFG Vice President, referring to the most important criteria for the prize. Furthermore, all prizewinners already hold prominent positions in research and academic teaching, whether as junior professors, research assistants or heads of their own independent
