RCC/QCIF eResearch Analyst Dr Marlies Hankel will be promoted from Research Fellow to Senior Research Fellow, effective from 1 January 2017.
Marlies said she was “very grateful for the recognition of my academic as well as service achievements.”
RCC Director Prof. David Abramson said he was delighted to see her promoted. “Marlies is a valuable member of our team, and has significant expertise in theoretical chemistry and supercomputing.
“In a year when RCC has explicitly promoted senior women in computing as keynote speakers in the RCC seminar series, I am thrilled to see UQ making inroads into gender equity in academic appointments,” said David.
Marlies’ time is split evenly between being a RCC and QCIF eResearch Analyst and working as a researcher in UQ’s Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology and as a member of AIBN’s Centre for Theoretical and Computational Molecular Science.
RCC congratulates Marlies on her promotion.
