Executive and Scientific Expertise


Jan is a plant biologist with strong scientific management, fundraising, and outreach experience. He joined the Institute in March 2004 as Research Operations Officer.

Jan’s expertise and qualification includes:

* Research Operations Management: Interfacing the Institute's scientific mission and goals with authorities & administration, headquarters, funding organizations & stakeholders.
* Quality & Visibility: Routine reporting, trustees, organization of evaluations.
* Line Manager of the Institute’s Library: ... including bibliometry, statistics, and research data analysis.
* Networking with universities and other research institutions.
* Fundraising: Frequent scientist's training how to prepare successful grant proposals, foresight & implementation of domestic or international research programs, and research project’s realization: grant agreements, reporting, and auditing. Present grant's management: ERC, Marie Curie, FP7 coll. projects, HFSP, DFG, VW, DAAD, BMBF.
* Outreach: Presentation of the Institute's research and science via articles, seminars, and talks - preferentially on green gene technology and agricultural issues.
* Lecture Qualification (Habilitation) in Biochemistry, University of Rostock. Private lecturer until 2007.
* Dr. rer. nat. in Biology (Plant Biochemistry), University of Göttingen.
* Languages: fluent in English and German (native).

Jan is interested in further advancing research & development in the life sciences, also and especially by being involved into research funding strategies and politics in Germany and all over Europe.
