Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Belzig

Wolfgang Belzig completed his physics studies at TU Karlsruhe (now KIT), culminating in a diploma thesis within Gerd Schön's group on superconducting proximity effects in 1995. He earned his PhD from the same institution in 1999, focusing on unconventional superconducting heterostructures. Following this, he spent two years as a Feodor-Lynen-Fellow and FOM postdoc at TU Delft, collaborating with G.E.W. Bauer and Yu. V. Nazarov. Joining the University of Basel in 2001, he worked in Christoph Bruder's group, where he obtained his Habilitation on superconductor-ferromagnet heterostructures in 2003.

In 2005, he was granted an SNF Assistant Professorship at the University of Basel and was honored with the Walter-Schottky Prize from the German Physical Society. Subsequently, he accepted a tenured W3 professorship at the University of Konstanz. From 2012 to 2019, he served as spokesperson for the DFG-funded collaborative research center SFB 767 Controlled Nanosystems and received the APS Outstanding Referee Award from the American Physical Society in 2012. Additionally, from 2015 to 2021, he contributed as a member of the Walter-Schottky-Award committee and the Council of the German Physical Society.

Since 2021, Wolfgang Belzig has served as the Spokesperson of SFB 1432 Fluctuations and Nonlinearities in Classical and Quantum Matter beyond Equilibrium.
