Jens Kreisel is a Professor for Physics and Materials Sciences, with a particular interest in the interplay of different physical properties in functional materials and how such functionalities can be translated into technology. He runs his research group in close collaboration with the Dept. Materials Research and Technology of the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST).

In addition to his career as a scientist, Jens Kreisel has acquired over the past decade a large experience in the senior executive management of both academic institutions and research-driven departments, with a sound knowledge of different international university and research systems.

Brought up in Dortmund, Germany, Jens Kreisel studied physics in Germany and France. In 1999, he obtained his PhD in materials science at Grenoble INP, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Oxford. He then joined the “Centre national de la recherche scientifique” (CNRS) in Grenoble, where he was appointed Research Director in 2009.

From 2008 to 2011, Prof. Kreisel was deputy Vice President of International Relations at Grenoble INP, France’s largest Engineering school. He spent a sabbatical year 2011/12 at the University of Warwick before becoming in Luxembourg scientific director of the Department of Materials Science at the Gabriel-Lippmann Public Research Centre, then director of the Department Materials Research and Technology, at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST).

 Jens Kreisel holds a PEARL chair of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) and is editor-in-Chief of the international journal Phase Transitions. In September 2018, he was appointed full professor and took office as the Vice-Rector for Research of the University of Luxembourg.

Throughout his career, he has published more than 130 publications (see Google scholar), has received numerous awards and has attracted approximately 8 million Euro of personal research funding.
