Prof.Dr. Detlef Günther

Detlef Günther is full professor for Trace Element and Micro Analysis at the Department for Chemistry and Applied Biosciences (D-CHAB) at ETH Zurich. His research in the field of Analytical Chemistry is focused on instrument and method development for trace and ultra-trace element analysis and isotope ratio determinations using high spatial resolution laser ablation and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. His group contributed approx. 400 publications to fundamental and applied research in Analytical Chemistry. He received the Lester Strock Award, the European Award for Plasma Mass Spectrometry, the Widmer Award. In 2014 he became member of the German National Academy of Science Leopoldina.

He has been a member of the strategy commission and the tenure committee of ETH. From 2010-2012 he has been the chair of the D-CHAB. In 2014 he became a member of the national academy of science Leopoldina. From 2015-2020 he has been Vice President for Research and Corporate Relation at ETH. 

Since 2021 he is Vice President for Research and responsible for research activities within ETH, which includes the strategic development of platforms, equipment, competence centres and research funding instruments (internal and external). Furthermore, research projects within the European Research Programs are coordinated within his department.
