Dec 2020 – Ivan receives tenure at FSU Jena

After a positive tenure evaluation this July, Ivan has accepted and is now appointed to the University Professor position at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. The group is truly grateful for the trust the university leadership has placed in us. We are very excited about continuing our work in research and education, and we look forward to many more productive years in Jena!

Feb 2020 – Lab renovations begin

Crash! Boom! Bang! Just some of the sounds coming from our labs at the moment. Some of our group members, chemicals and equipment have found refuge in the neighboring labs (thanks to AG Arndt, AG Schacher and AG Balducci!) while others are focusing on office work during lab renovations. We are all very excited about a new start in the newly refurbished labs in April!

More importantly, we finally have more time to write and submit papers which is a great lead-in to Ivan’s tenure evaluation. Stay tuned!
