Bayreuth alumnus Prof. Dr. André Gröschel is returning to his alma mater. In 2012, he had left the University of Bayreuth as a post-doc, and now the chemist with a doctorate is returning to take up the new professorship of Polymer Materials for Electrochemical Storage. Previously, Gröschel had been employed as a professor at the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Münster and was a junior professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

"I missed the uncomplicated, typical Franconian mentality," he says. But there is much more that attracts him to the University of Bayreuth: "The conditions here are excellent. The close cooperation of the working groups, the excellently equipped Keylabs and the solution-oriented way of working at the University of Bayreuth convince me."

Gröschel will be researching sustainable components for batteries at BayBatt. "With my research, I want to contribute to making batteries more powerful and safer," he says.

Fully motivated, Gröschel is also getting right into teaching. In July, he will take over courses in the Master of Battery Technology. From the winter semester onwards, he will offer courses in the two Master's programmes at BayBatt as well as in the chemistry programmes.
