Prof. Dr. Çiğdem İşsever has been the Academic Director for the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) cooperation with the University of Oxford since January 1, 2021. Soon, an Academic Director will as well be appointed at the University of Oxford as her counterpart. The position has been newly created to strengthen the governance structure of the partnership and give even greater consideration to academic interests.

Prof. İşsever has been researching as professor of Experimental High Energy Physics at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin since autumn 2019 and is a senior scientist at the German Electron Synchrotron (DESY) in Zeuthen. As Academic Director, she supports scientists in joint projects, research proposals and events within the framework of the cooperation. She will also coordinate the activities of the Centre for Advanced Sudies (CAS), which was founded in July 2020, and thus advance research in the Grand Challenge Initiatives “Social Cohesion” and “Global Health”.
