Sam Hall-McMaster, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Max Planck Research Group NeuroCode – Neural and Computational Basis of Learning, Memory and Decision Making, has been awarded a Humboldt Research Fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
Ute Frevert, Director of the Research Center for the History of Emotions, has been elected to the Presidium of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and to the Council of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW).
Sebastian Grüneisen, Postdoc at the Center for Adaptive Rationality has been awarded a Starting Grant by the European Research Council (ERC). With the ERC Starting Grant, the European Union is supporting promising scientist at the beginning of an independent career with up to 1.5 million euros.
The prize was first bestowed by the German Academy for Language and Literature in 1964. It is granted to scholars who publish in German and contribute decisively to the development of language usage in their fields of study through outstanding linguistic style.
