Prof. Dr. Jan Lüning, Scientific Director at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), was appointed to an S-W3 professorship at Humboldt University in Berlin in July. The professorship is entitled "Electronic Properties of Materials/X-ray Analysis" and is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Humboldt University Berlin.

"I am very pleased about my appointment to the Humboldt University, which will allow us to further strengthen our cooperation with the Alliance of Berlin Universities, also in order to attract students to research at the HZB," says Lüning.

Jan Lüning moved to HZB in autumn 2018 to take over the tasks of a scientific managing director. He heads the "Matter" division, while the "Energy and Information" division is headed by Prof. Dr. Bernd Rech as second Scientific Director.

Jan Lüning is an internationally renowned expert for research with synchrotron radiation. Before joining HZB, he worked at the French synchrotron SOLEIL and taught as a professor at the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris. He has been instrumental in the development of new experimental methods at synchrotron sources, both in Paris and at the synchrotron in Stanford, USA.
