The RWTH Fellows program honors outstanding professors at RWTH Aachen with outstanding research achievements that have significantly contributed to the University's success. The title also carries an award of 25,000 euros in research funding. Selected nominees are appointed for the duration of their employment at RWTH Aachen.
All deans nominate professors from their faculty. Using external reviews, the RWTH Fellows selection committee nominates candidates for selection and submits their nominations to the Rectorate to be selected as RWTH Fellow.
We'd like to note that members of the selection committee nominated as RWTH Fellows by their faculty's dean will not be included in the evaluation process that follows. This ensures good scientific practice in accordance with the recommendations made by the German Research Society.
The RWTH Fellows program is part of the Place to Be measure. The program is headed by the coordinator of the Place to Be measure, Vice-Rector Doris Klee, coordinator of the Place to Be measure. She is responsible for preparations as well as for the calls being announced in the dean's offices, evaluations, and quality assurance.
The RWTH Fellows selection committee consists of Doris Klee, members of the ERS selection committee, and the speakers of the profile areas.
The selection committee's responsibilities are to
- support the head of the measure
- select external reviewers
- evaluate and forward nominations to the Rectorate
