JuDocs Ceremony 2018

Seecasino, Forschungszentrum Jülich - 23 June 2018

In addition to awarding the Excellence Prizes, Forschungszentrum Jülich honoured a total of 44 doctoral researchers at the 2018 JuDocs event. “They will now go out into the world as ambassadors – for Forschungszentrum Jülich and its unique multidisciplinary environment, but also for science as a whole,” said Prof. Wolfgang Marquardt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Forschungszentrum Jülich, in his welcome address. He went on to remark that science is currently facing a crisis of trust and stressed that “scientists from Jülich and other research establishments and universities now have an even greater responsibility”. In his view, their scientific research helps society to recognize the significance of verifiable knowledge.

Forschungszentrum Jülich has been awarding the distinction since 2009. It is based on an outstanding doctoral thesis, the main parts of which were written at Jülich, combined with excellent achievements during the subsequent postdoc phase of up to two years. This year’s winners conduct their research in the fields of particle physics, biotechnology, brain research, as well as neutron scattering and soft matter.

In 2017, a total of 1,048 doctoral researchers from 66 countries were supervised at Forschungszentrum Jülich.
