ERC starting grants go to Jillian Petersen and Felipa Sousa


We congratulate Ass.-Prof. Dr. Jillian Petersen (Department of Microbiology and Ecosystem Science) and Dr. Filipa Sousa (Department of Ecogenomics and Systems Biology) for receiving the prestigious ERC Starting Grant!

Of the nine starting grants that went to Austria this year, four were awarded to female scientists of the University of Vienna. This is the best result for our University since the initiation of the program in 2007 and hopefully indicates a positive trend towards more female leadership in the future.
