New staff


In September 2016, Pedro Schwaller was appointed Professor of Theoretical Particle Physics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. His research field is theoretical particle physics beyond the Standard Model. Of particular interest to him are the search for evidence of a New Physics using the LHC, the nature of dark matter and the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the early universe.

On February 1, 2013, Matthias Schott was appointed Junior Professor of Experimental Particle Physics at JGU. At the Institute of Physics, he will be assuming a Lichtenberg Professorship. In addition, he is also a Fellow of the Gutenberg Research College (GRC) of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. His mission is to determine in the very broadest sense how exactly those building blocks of the material defined in the Standard Model of particle physics obtain their mass.
