Professor Gerhard Wilde, Director of the Institute of Materials Physics at the University of Münster, will succeed Professor Thomas Schimmel from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Professor Thomas Schimmel has served as Editor-in-Chief of the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology since it was established in November of 2010. His participation and commitment was essential for the journal’s development. As Founding Editor-in-Chief, he will continue to advise the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology and support the Editorial Board. “We thank Professor Schimmel for his continuous dedication and appreciate that he will continue to contribute his valuable expertise to our journal,” acknowledges Dr. Wendy Patterson, Board Member of the Beilstein-Institut.
Professor Gerhard Wilde has been appointed as Professor Schimmel’s successor and will assume his new role on November 20, 2022. Professor Wilde studied physics at the University of Cologne and at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Cologne. He then earned his doctorate in materials science under Professor Fecht at the Technical University of Berlin. As a Feodor Lynen Research Fellow, he then moved to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to join Professor Perepezko’s group. After returning to Germany, he was initially employed as a senior researcher in Professor Gleiter’s group at the Research Center Karlsruhe. He participated in the DFG Emmy-Noether program and became a group leader at the Research Center Karlsruhe and professor at Saarland University. Since 2006, he has been professor and director of the Institute of Materials Physics at the University of Münster.
“We warmly welcome the new Editor-in-Chief of the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology and are very much looking forward to working with Professor Wilde,” says Dr. Barbara Hissa, Managing Editor of the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology.
