Bonn Research Fellows

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics gives former members the opportunity to keep close ties and intensify earlier cooperation with the HCM. The Bonn Research Fellow program is aimed at selected former HCM Bonn Junior Fellows and Advanced Researchers (W2) of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics who have moved to a foreign research institution after their tenure in Bonn. Bonn Research Fellows are appointed by the HCM Board of Directors for a duration of five years. A re-appointment is possible. During this time, the Bonn Research Fellows spend some weeks every year in Bonn and participate in the teaching activities of Bonn Mathematics.
