Big news: I started on a tenure track position in Vienna in September 2015!
I was in the very fortunate situation where I ended up being able to select from two excellent offers from exactly the two universities where I most wanted to work. In the end the offers were very similar, and we made a decision as a family to stay in Vienna. It is no suprise to me that Vienna is constantly ranked as one of the best cities to live in. This is a great place.
My research group is called Disorder in Materials. We made the logo of the group together with Toma Susi, who joined my group from the beginning. Now we need to get the offices and lab spaces renovated and start to setup the new equipment in there.
