PhD, Physics, 2011, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology


Prof. Dr Isabelle Staude studied physics at the University of Konstanz and subsequently received her PhD degree in physics from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, in 2011. For her postdoc, she moved to the Australian National University, where she coordinated the experimental activities on optical nanoantennas and served the nanoplasmonics stream in the Australian Centre of Excellence CUDOS as deputy project leader. She returned to Germany in mid-2015 to establish a junior research group on functional photonic nanostructures at the Institute of Applied Physics and the Abbe Center of Photonics at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany. She received an Emmy-Noether Grant from the German Research Foundation as well as the Hertha Sponer Prize 2017 from the German Physical Society. In November 2017, she became a junior professor at the same institution. From autumn 2016 to spring 2020 she coordinated the research association “Nano-Film” funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).

Since 2018, she serves as Associate Editor for Optics Express. She is an elected member of the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, a member of the German Young Academy, and a member of the Management Board of the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) “Nonlinear Optics Down to Atomic Scales" (NOA). In spring 2020, she was promoted to full professor and joined the Institute for Solid State Physics at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena.
