HPI Research School Awards Ten New Grants to Scientists

July 1, 2014

POTSDAM, Germany, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

The Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) has officially announced that it will be awarding
grants for its international Research School to ten young scientists. Beginning in the
coming winter semester, the junior researchers will reinforce the team of the Potsdam
Research School, which currently consists of 24 members. Suitable candidates who are
working towards their PhD or who already hold a doctorate are invited to submit their
application to the HPI Research School (http://www.hpi.de/research-school). The
deadline is August 15th.

With its branches at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, (10 scholarship
holders), the Technion in Haifa, Israel (13 scholarship holders), and the Nanjing
University in China (8 scholarship holders), the Potsdam Graduate School has dedicated
itself to the field of “Service-Oriented Systems Engineering.” Scholars investigate the
current overarching questions from different perspectives in their own research areas.
This model, introduced at HPI in 2005, calls for junior researchers to be jointly mentored
by their professors rather than only on an individual basis.

“Each of our PhD candidates consequently also learns the questions, theoretical models
and practical approaches of other disciplines,” said HPI director Prof. Dr. Christoph
Meinel describing the significant advantage. This facilitates a mutual understanding of
content and supports fruitful collaborative work with other scientists and specialists.

Applications to the HPI Research School must be submitted by August 15th of the
respective year, with research positions normally available each October. Please send
applications to the following e-mail address: research-school-application@hpi.de. HPI
Research School spokesman is Prof. Dr. Andreas Polze, and the acting coordinator is Prof.
Dr. Robert Hirschfeld.
