Champs is thrilled to announce that Dr Matthaios Katsanikas, Champs PDRA, has been elected as researcher C (assistant professor level) in Dynamical Astronomy at Research Center for Astronomy and Applied Mathematics (RCAAM) of Academy of Athens.
The Academy of Athens (Greek: Ακαδημία Αθηνών, Akadimía Athinón) is Greece’s national academy, and the highest research establishment in the country. It was established in 1926, and operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Education. The Academy’s main building is one of the major landmarks of Athens.
Dr Katsanikas duties in his new role will be the research and the supervision of research programs, postdoctoral researchers and Master and PhD theses and the teaching at postgraduate programs. He expects to take up this position in early 2021.
Dr Katsanikas joined the Champs project in 2017, one of our first PDRA cohort, based in Bristol under Professor Wiggins supervision. He has made great progress during his time working on the project, so this next step in his career is well deserved and recognition of what an excellent researcher he is.
We wish Dr Katsanikas all the best for the future.
