Wolfgang Belzig studied physics at TU Karlsruhe (now KIT) and finished with a diploma thesis in the group of Gerd Schön on superconducting proximity effects in 1995. He obtained his PhD on the topic of unconventional superconducting heterostructures at the same institution in 1999. After that he spent two years as Feodor-Lynen-Fellow and FOM postdoc at TU Delft working with G.E.W. Bauer and Yu. V. Nazarov. In 2001 he joined the group of Christoph Bruder at University of Basel, where he obtained his Habilitation on superconductor-ferromagnet heterostructures in 2003. In 2005 he was awarded an SNF Assistant professorship at the University of Basel, received the Walter-Schottky prize of the German physical Society and accepted an offer for a tenured W3 professor position at the University of Konstanz. From 2012 until 2019 he was spokesperson of the DFG-funded collaborative research center SFB 767 Controlled Nanosystems. In 2012 he received the APS Outstanding Referee Award of the American Physical Society. From 2015-2021 he served on the Walter-Schottky-Award committee and as Member of the Council of the German Physical Society.  Since 2021 he is the Spokesperson of SFB 1432 Fluctuations and Nonlinearities in Classical and Quantum Matter beyond Equilibrium
