A chemist from Jena was denominate as a new External Member of the Max Planck Society
Prof. Dr. Ulrich S. Schubert Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (FSU), was called to become a Scientific Member of the Max Planck Society (MPG). This external membership at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces is expected to strengthen the already tight relations of the chemist and materials scientist with the Potsdam based research clusters.
An Example for interdisciplinary research bridging disciples and borders
The 47-years old Schubert sets a model case for interdisciplinary work bridging different disciplines, but also other borders. He works with scientists in many disciplines – from material science to medicine – and beyond his university. Not only acknowledges the Max Planck Society his previous research, but also allows an even closer cooperation through this demonination with other scientist of the Max Planck Society. By his nomination, the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces sees new chances finding answers to crucial scientific questions of the 21st century, especially in the areas of “New Energy Storage Materials” and “Pharmacological relevant Polymers”.
The Max Planck Society further refers to Schubert’s engagement in supporting internationality and cosmopolitanism through the “Internationale Junge Orchesterakademie”, the international young orchestra academy, whose director and clarinetist the Jena scientist is.
