Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange has announced the results of the third edition of the „Polish Returns” programme. In this edition, thirteen scientists will return from other countries to carry out research work in Poland. NAWA will finance the best projects of scientists in the field of natural and exact sciences, medical and social sciences. Moreover, seven projects are recommended for a starting grant from the National Science Center. Most scientists under the programme will return to the University of Warsaw (five people). Three grants for the Faculty of Physics, and one each for CeNT and the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics.
A laureate of the Polish Returns program, Dr. Wojciech Skomorowski, was associated with the Quantum Chemistry Laboratory at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Warsaw, where he completed his master’s and doctoral studies with honors.
Since 2013, Dr. Skomorowski has successfully continued his scientific career abroad: at the University of Kassel, Germany, where he completed his postdoctoral internship under the Humboldt scholarship. Since 2016 he has been working at the University of Southern California.
Dr. Skomorowski is also a member of the American Physical Society.
