Women in Science 2024 @ CeMESS

News

To celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (February 11th), CeMESS is once again shining the spotlight on our remarkable female staff and researchers. And we're not alone - this year, many of the University of Vienna's STEM Faculties are participating in this campaign, including: the Faculty of Computer Science, the Faculty of Earth Sciences, Geography and Astronomy, the Faculty of Life Sciences, the Faculty of Mathematics, the Faculty of Physics, the Faculty of ChemistryMax Perutz Labs, and the Research Network Data Science @ Uni Vienna.

At CeMESS, more than half of our staff and researchers identify as women. This includes a significant number of faculty members and many highly talented early career researchers. Notably, women at CeMESS have been successful in securing competitive ERC grants, with 6 out of 10 recent awards going to our female researchers. 

The gallery below celebrates the diverse and influential women at CeMESS, all of whom make important contributions to our research environment. Join us in acknowledging the talent and dedication of our female scientists, whose work not only advances scientific knowledge but also contributes to a more inclusive academic community.
