HITS researcher is Schiemann Fellow of the Max Planck Society

2. July 2021

Ganna (Anya) Gryn’ova, head of the Computational Carbon Chemistry (CCC) group at HITS, has been elected as Schiemann Fellow of the Max Planck Society. The program fosters the careers of excellent female scientists. The Elisabeth-Schiemann-Kolleg includes mentoring, networking, scientific exchanges and regular plenary meetings. Ganna Gryn’ova is one of five fellows that have been admitted to the Kolleg this year.

Within the Elisabeth-Schiemann-Kolleg scientific members of the Max Planck Society foster the careers of excellent female scientists after their postdoc phase, helping them to succeed on their way to an appointment as a tenured professor or as a director of a research institution. The support of the Elisabeth-Schiemann-Kolleg is of non-material nature; the fellows are not supported financially.

Ganna Gryn’ova is leader of the junior group Computational Carbon Chemistry (CCC) group at HITS. She studied chemistry at the Oles Honchar Dnipro National University, Ukraine before pursuing a Ph.D. in computational chemistry at the Australian National University, Canberra. She spent her postdoctoral research at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, before she joined HITS in April 2019. Since 2020, Ganna Gryn’ova is also member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) at Heidelberg University. She has received several awards, among them the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship by the European Commission.

The Schiemann fellows are selected by the members of the Kolleg. Usually, five new fellows are admitted every year. The membership of the fellows normally expires after five years. Obtainment of a permanent job automatically leads to termination.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
