A total of 1,567 scientists completed their post-doctoral lecturing qualification (habilitation) at universities in Germany in 2013.
he Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that the number of habilitations fell by almost 5% on a year earlier.
It even decreased by as much as 32% compared with the all-time high of 2002.
For three decades the average age of academics at the time they complete the habilitation procedure has been approximately 40 years.
In the reference year of 2013 they were 41.1 years on average.

Liquid water is a very good heat storage medium – anyone with a Thermos bottle knows that. However, as soon as water boils or freezes, its storage capacity drops precipitously. Physicists at the University of Bonn have now observed very similar behavior in a gas of light particles. Their findings can be used, for example, to produce ultra-precise thermometers. The work appears in the prestigious technical journal "Nature Communications".
Water vapor becomes liquid under 100 degrees Celsius – it condenses. Physicists speak of a phase transition. In this process, certain thermodynamic...
