Peter Braun-Munzinger has been appointed as Professor at the university in Wuhan, China



Prof. Peter Braun-Munzinger has been appointed as Gui Zhi-Ting Chair Professor at the Central China Normal University in Wuhan for the next four years. Peter Braun-Munzinger is the Scientific Director of the ExtreMe Matter Institute (EMMI) at GSI in Darmstadt. The professorship will deepen the existing scientific cooperation with China.

„In this cooperation we will mainly investigate the quark-gluon-plasma. This is the state of matter in the early universe shortly after the big bang“, says Peter Braun-Munzinger.

The cooperation includes theoretical as well as experimental work at the experiments ALICE at CERN in Geneva, STAR in Brookhaven, USA, and the CBM experiment at the future accelerator facility FAIR at GSI.
