News of the Crystallography &
Geomaterials Research Group
We welcome 3 new
researcher associated with our group: Lobna Saaed, Jakob
Brauer (PhD students in the Crystalline
Microporous Materials group) and Dr. Paul Klar
(own research group on Materials Mineralogy themes).
We welcome Prof. Juan
Manuel García-Ruiz as guest lecture in the Geoscience
Department colloquium on Wed 8. June at
12:15 in GEO1550 (The formation of giant gypsum crystals:
nucleation, growth and preservation). In recognization
of his immense achievements, the German Crystallgraphic
Society has recently awarded Juanma the Liebau-Prize for the Promotion of
Interdisciplinarity in Crystallography. To celebrate this
award and to allow for a lifely exchange of opinion and
ideas, there will be a reception with beverages and finger
food after the lecture just outside of the lecture hall.

We offer a PhD job
for 36 month in cooperation with MARUM on OLIVINE solid
solution series and compounds. Materials with the olivine
structure are frequently studied for various applications.
If you are interested in crystallography and want to look
for some diffuse scattering, please get in touch with us
as the deadline for application has passed.
Our team member
Prof. Dr. Hartmut Schneider will receive the
Georg-Agricola-Medal for his scientific research on
Applied Mineralogy by the Deutsche Mineralogische
information of the German Mineralogical Society DMG
We welcome Prof. Dr. Ella M. Schmidt as new group
leader. See department news.
We also welcome guest
scientist Vårin Trælvik Eilertsen of the
Geosciences Department, Tromsø, UIT The Arctic University
of Norway. See her video on explaning her
research on Arctic Ice Sheets.
