-Professor of Astroparticle Physics and Radio Astronomy\\ +
- +
- +
-Heino Falcke leads the [[research:​rap:​start|Radio Astronomy and Astroparticle Physics (RAP) group]] in the Department of Astrophysics. He works primarily on black holes and ultra-high energy cosmic rays. +
- +
-== Curriculum Vitae == +
-Heino Falcke (born 1966 in Cologne, Germany) studied physics at the universities of Cologne and Bonn. He graduated with a physics diploma in 1992 and received his PhD, summa cum laude, at the University of Bonn two years later. Before joining Radboud university Falcke has worked as a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, at the University of Maryland, the University of Arizona and the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON).  +

-=== Honors === +
-Heino Falcke has received the [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Ludwig_Biermann_Award|Ludwig Biermann Award]] for ‘best young astronomer’ (2000) of the Astronomische Gesellschaft ([[http://​www.astronomische-gesellschaft.org/​en|AG]]);​ the [[http://​www.bbaw.de/​die-akademie/​auszeichnungen/​preise/​akademiepreis/​2006|Academy Award]] from the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (2006); a [[http://​millerinstitute.berkeley.edu/​page.php?​nav=232|Visiting Miller Professor Award]] at UC Berkeley (2006); a [[http://​www.ru.nl/​imapp/​current/​imapp-news/​@792052/​erc-advanced-grant/​|European Research Council Advanced Investigator Grant]] (2008) over 3.5 M€ for work with LOFAR and Auger on cosmic rays. In 2011 he received the highest NL science award, the [[http://​www.nwo.nl/​actueel/​nieuws/​2011/​NWO-Spinoza+voor+astronoom+Heino+Falcke.html|Spinoza Award]] for his work on the shadow of the black hole in the Galactic Center and his work with LOFAR on astroparticle physics. In 2013 he won an [[http://​www.ru.nl/​english/​@928308/​pagina/​|ERC Synergy grant]] over 14 M€ and in 2014 he was [[http://​www.astronomie.nl/#​!/​actueel/​nieuws/​_detail/​gli/​nijmeegse-astronoom-heino-falcke-gekozen-tot-lid-v/​|elected]] into the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences ([[http://​www.knaw.nl|KNAW]]). +
- +
-===Affiliations=== +
-Prof. Falcke is chair of the board of the [[http://​www.astron.nl/​general/​lofar/​lofar|International LOFAR Telescope (ILT)]] and of NL LOFAR for Astronomy Consortium (NL-LAC). He is also affiliated with the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy ([[http://​www.astron.nl|ASTRON]]),​ the builders of the LOFAR giant radio telescope. Moreover, he is a visiting scientist at the [[http://​www.mpifr-bonn.mpg.de|Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy]] in Bonn, Germany, where he is involved in the [[http://​www.skatelescope.org|Square Kilometre Array]], a continuation of LOFAR on a global scale. He is also member of the [[https://​www.nikhef.nl/​en/​|National Institute for Subatomic Physics]] (Nikhef). +
