TUM Liesel Beckmann Distinguished Professors

By the year 2025, TUM aims to have women account for one quarter of all its professors. As a first step to achieving this goal, TUM is creating eight additional professorships for top women researchers. The TUM Liesel Beckmann Distinguished Professorships take their name from the first woman professor at Technische Hochschule München, as the university was known in her time. It is hoped that the professorships will also encourage women students and early-career scientists who are dedicated to the natural sciences and engineering to embark on a career at the university.

The TUM-IAS welcomes the TUM Liesel Beckmann Distinguished Professors as Honorary Fellows and members of the TUM-IAS community.
