Henrik Beuther

After I got my PhD degree at the
Max-Planck-Institute for Radioastronomy in Bonn, I stayed for a few Postdoc years as an Emmy-Noether Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge/USA (CfA) in the Submillimeter Array Group (SMA). From September 2005 to September 2009, I  was the Head of an Emmy-Noether Research Group at the MPIA dedicated to study the earliest stages of massive star formation employing the exciting techniques of (Sub)millimeter Interferometry. Since then, I am staff member of the Planet and Star Formation Department at the MPIA. In 2013, I got appointed Associate Professor at the University of Heidelberg. In 2015, I received an ERC consolidator grant.
