Irène Joliot Curie Program of PRISMA promotes female physicists at all stages of their careers02.06.2014 - (idw) Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz
Support for woman in all phases of their academic careers at the PRISMA Cluster of Excellence and in its general research Environment at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz
The Cluster of Excellence "Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter" (PRISMA) at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), funded through the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments, investigates central aspects of the structure of matter and the fundamental forces at work in the universe. The researchers involved are attempting to find experimental evidence of the existence of dark matter and explain how matter came into being. "One important strategic aim of PRISMA is to achieve equality between male and female scientists at the institutional and research level," emphasized Professor Hartmut Wittig, Coordinator of the PRISMA Cluster of Excellence. "We thus set up the Irène Joliot Curie Program to support women in all phases of their scientific careers both at the cluster and in their broader research work." The program was launched in December 2013 and invites all female scientists at PRISMA to help design and structure the program by contributing their own suggestions and sharing their particular concerns. For this aim, the initiator of the Irène Joliot Curie Program, Professor Concettina Sfienti of the Institute of Nuclear Physics at JGU, has started an online platform for interaction and communication for all the female researchers at PRISMA. "We are also planning workshops, training sessions, and lectures for which the network can suggest topics," said Sfienti.
At the invitation of the Irène Joliot Curie Program, Marianne Heiß, European Finance Director at the advertising and marketing agency BBDO, will be giving a talk at Mainz University on June 12, 2014 on the subject of 'Women in management posts." There will be the opportunity for discussion following her keynote speech. The event starts at 1pm in the Institute of Nuclear Physics lecture hall, room 00-200, Johann-Joachim-Becher-Weg 45, on the Gutenberg campus. The event is open to the general public; all members of JGU are welcome to attend. Booking is not necessary. For more information, please go to https://www.facebook.com/events/277045582456168.
The Cluster of Excellence "Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter" at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is to receive approximately EUR 35 million in support from the state and federal governments over the period to 2017. A large proportion of this funding will be used by the participating particle and hadron physicists to construct MESA (Mainz Energy-recovering Superconducting Accelerator) an innovative type of particle accelerator. The researchers hope they can use the accelerator to find direct experimental evidence of the nature of dark matter in the universe. Specifically, they intend to use MESA to find so-called dark photons, which are postulated to mediate interactions between visible and dark matter.
