Dear all,

the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is one of Germany's premier academic exchange organisations. The call is out to head your own research group at a German research institution / university - see below. As a past awardee I can assure you that the possibilities to shape your own career this way are excellent. Please do not hesitate to ask, if you have questions. I am sure every colleague in Germany would be excited to discuss possibilities to host you and your group at one of the German research institutions working with tree rings.
