Curriculum Vitae
Prof. Claudius Gros


Born February 18, 1961, I lived in Germany, in or close to Wiesbaden, until I was twelve years old.

We then moved to Rome/Italy, where I went to the German high-school.

1980 I moved to Zürich/Switzerland, where I studied physics at the ETH-Zürich. After finishing my studies in 1985 I stayed another three years at the ETH-Zürich for my PhD in theoretical condensed-matter physics with Prof. T.M. Rice.

1988-1990 I stayed at the Indiana University, Bloomington, with Steve Girvin and Allan MacDonald for a post-doctoral research period, initially as a Chester-Davies fellow.

In 1990 I moved to the University of Dortmund/Germany, being 29 years old, after having lived 17 years outside Germany.
In the same year I married Roser Valenti. We are still married, we have three children, Kilian, Nathan and Agnes.

In 1999 I accepted an offer from the University of the Saarland in Saarbrücken/Germany for a chair in theoretical Physics.

In 2005 I accepted an offer from the University of Frankfurt in Frankfurt a.M./Germany for a chair in theoretical Physics.

 

Zu meiner Person

Für eine deutsche Fassung vom Lebenslauf steht der Wikipedia-Eintrag zur Verfügung.

Meine Arbeitsweise wird schön durch eine Beschreibung erfasst, die Philipp Hummel in der 'Welt am Sonntag' vom 2. Oktober 2016 in seinem Artikel 'Mister Genesis' gegeben hat:

Die Evolution hat Tiere hervorgebracht, die sich nicht zwischen zwei Welten entscheiden können. Amphibien leben an Lande, können sich aber nur im Wasser fortpflanzen. Gros ist auch so ein Brückentier. Er wandelt zwischen Vernunft und Fantasie, Präzision und Träumerei, Wissenschaft und Science-Fiction.
