Professor Lars Bildsten, Permanent Member at the KITP, has been awarded the Biermann Lectureship at the Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics (MPA) in Munich for Summer 2004. Established in 1997, the Biermann Lectureship brings a world-ranked astrophysicist to Garching for a month with the task of giving a series of prize lectures and interacting broadly within the various local institutes. The aim is to stimulate scientific activity across the Munich astronomical community. Previous Biermann Lecturers were Joseph Silk (1997), Roger Blandford (1998), Bob Williams (1999), Bohdan Paczynski (2000), James Truran (2001), and Ramesh Narayan (2002).
