July 31, 2020 — Prof. Thomas Lippert, head of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, has been appointed professor at Goethe University Frankfurt and will occupy the newly created chair for “Modular Supercomputing and Quantum Computing” at the Institute for Computer Science. He will exercise this appointment in place of his previous position as professor at the University of Wuppertal.
He will support the Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) at the Goethe University in its further development into a national high-performance computing centre. While continuing his position at JSC, Lippert is particularly excited to establishing two new research groups in Frankfurt to explore the development and practical application of modular supercomputers and quantum computers. Simultaneously with his appointment, Prof. Lippert will become a Senior Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS).
JSC wishes Thomas Lippert all the best for his new position and is looking forward to the new cooperation opportunities with the Goethe University Frankfurt.
About Jülich Supercomputing Centre
The Jülich Supercomputing Centre at Forschungszentrum Jülich has been operating the first German supercomputing centre since 1987, and with the Jülich Institute for Advanced Simulation it is continuing the long tradition of scientific computing at Jülich. Computing time at the highest performance level is made available to researchers in Germany and Europe by means of an independent peer-review process. At the time being, JSC operates one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe, JUWELS.
