Stefan SÖLDNER-rembold


Stefan Söldner-Rembold is Head of the Particle Physics Group at the University of Manchester. He is currently Spokesperson of the DUNE Collaboration which has the goal to discover CP violation (matter-anti-matter asymmetry) in neutrino interactions using liquid-argon detectors located in a mine in South Dakota. He is also a member of the SBND and MicroBooNE Collaborations at the Fermilab short-baseline neutrino programm.  In addition, he is a founding member of the IceCube-GEN2 Collaboration with the goal to build the PINGU array at the South Pole. He is a member of the NEMO-3 and SuperNEMO Collaborations searching for neutrinoless double-beta decay, with responsibility for building the SuperNEMO tracking detector.

Stefan also served as Spokesperson of the DØ Experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron near to Chicago from 2009 to 2011, after having been DØ Physics Coordinator for two years.  His main research interest on DØ was the search for Higgs bosons.

Stefan was awarded the 2018 Chadwick Medal of the IoP. In 2013, he received a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award. He is a Fellow of the IoP and the American Physical Society. He served on the HEPAP advisory panel from 2015 to 2018. He was a member of STFC’s Particle Physics Grants Panel (PPGP) from 2005 until 2009 and has been a member of several grant review panels of the US Department of Energy since 2009.

From 1999 until 2003, he was Heisenberg Fellow of the German Research Foundation (DFG) working as Visiting Scientist at Fermilab (2001-2003) and as CERN Scientific Associate and OPAL Physics Coordinator at CERN (2000-2001). From 1992 until 1999 he worked at Freiburg University, first on the ZEUS Experiment at DESY in Hamburg and then on the OPAL Experiment at CERN.

Stefan Söldner--Rembold received his Habilitation from Freiburg University in 1996 and graduated in 1992 as Dr.rer.nat. from the Technical University of Munich supported by a fellowship of the Max Planck Institute for Physics, with a thesis based on research undertaken with the E665 Experiment at Fermilab. He studied at Bonn University, where he worked on the WA69 Experiment for his diploma thesis. He was born in Munich, Germany.
