Title of presentation: NCCR MUST and Gender Equality Measures
Ursula Keller 13Sept2017

Abstract
NCCR MUST (Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology) is an interdisciplinary research network established by the Swiss National Science Foundation in 2010. Our main disciplines are physics and chemistry, with 19 research groups working across Switzerland. One aspect of our work is to encourage gender equality in science. A key issue is the low number of women scientists at every stage of the science career in our disciplines.  This presentation outlines the gender equality measures MUST has initiated to recruit, retain, support, promote and advance women scientists in our fields.

Short biography:
Ursula Keller has been a tenured professor of physics at ETH Zurich since 1993 (www.ulp.ethz.ch), and serves as a director of the Swiss research program NCCR MUST in ultrafast science since 2010 (www.nccr-must.ch). She received a „Diplom“ at ETH Zurich in 1984, a Ph.D. at Stanford University USA in 1989, was a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Labs USA 1989 to 1993. She has been a co-founder and board member for Time-Bandwidth Products (acquired by JDSU in 2014) and for GigaTera (acquired by Time-Bandwidth in 2003). Her research interests are exploring and pushing the frontiers in ultrafast science and technology. Awards include the OSA Charles H. Townes Award (2015), LIA Arthur L. Schawlow Award (2013), ERC advanced grant (2012), EPS Senior Prize (2011), OSA Fraunhofer/Burley Prize (2008), Leibinger Innovation Prize (2004), and Zeiss Research Award (1998).
