Regional representatives

To provide an attractive program in every part of Austria local representatives are operating at key locations. They organise events and form the link between the local young scientists and the Jungchemiker board.

Regional representatives of Graz

Name: Maximilian Neubauer
My interest in chemistry already started in school, what ultimately lead to studying chemistry in Graz in 2015. With beginning of the master programme, I came in contact with the organisation and soon became a member. What I consider an important task is the collaboration between universities, the industry and persons from the corporate sector because that way, students can build a network and get insight into different businesses, which is very beneficial for entering into employment.

In 2016, I decided to study Chemistry at the University of Graz and am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Technical Chemistry, also in Graz. I found the Young Chemists Network in April 2020 when two RV Graz members I knew from my extended circle of friends shared on social media that they were looking for new members. What I really appreciate about the work with the Young Chemists Network is that I can personally help to shape the subject areas and soft skills for which experts are invited for our workshops and lectures.

Regional representatives of Innsbruck
Name: Patrick Bonke

I have been studying chemistry in Innsbruck since October 2018 and joined the Young Chemists Network in my second semester. From the beginning, I was excited about the versatility of the Young Chemists Network. The events we offer give students the opportunity to get to know the industry, learn important skills for their studies or CV, but also to get to know their fellow students in a relaxed atmosphere.

After completing my Matura in Graz, I decided to study chemistry in Innsbruck in 2017. In the second year of my studies I joined the Young Chemists Network, because as a "Ersti" I enjoyed participating in events and felt like organizing them and meeting new people. During my bachelor studies I took the chance to study in Bordeaux (France) for one year through the Erasmus+ program. I enjoyed the exchange with international students so much that I also joined the European Young Chemists Network (EYCN) in March 2021. As a young chemist, I enjoy enabling students to make contact with industry and also with each other, to learn something new at workshops and seminars, or to pass on my own knowledge.

Regional representative of Linz

Name: Andrea Schweighuber
Since 2013, I am studying Chemistry at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. After my master's thesis, I am starting my doctoral thesis in the fields of analytical chemistry in November 2018. As part of the Jungchemiker, I am glad to give other students the chance to get in contact with the industry and to offer an interesting side program to their studies.

Regional representatives of Salzburg
Name:Leonhard Hecht

I am currently studying the joint-degree bachelor‘s degree engineering science in Salzburg. This is at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg and subsequently at the Technical University of Munich. Since this year i have been member of the Young Chemists in the regional representation of Salzburg. As with my work in the student representation, i am inspired by the contact with committed people from a wide range of fields and that it offers for me both, compensation and complementarity to the course of study.

Name: Daniela Söllinger

I study in the PhD program in the field of materials science/electrochemistry at the University of Salzburg since the winter semester 2018. I really enjoy working with people and always make new contacts. That's why I joined forces with four other fellow students in January 2018 and, with the help of the federal representation, founded the regional representation in Salzburg. I learned a lot in the process and afterwards I got the change to be part of the FR myself. Now I am active again in my old RR. The tasks and projects are/were always exciting and I have met a lot of new people, learned a lot and always had fun. Now I'm happy to be able to help out in my RR again and to plan new projects.

Regional representatives of Vienna

Name: Sarah Keck
I studied chemistry at the Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena and came to Vienna with an exchange program in 2015. My master thesis was a cooperation project and I did my practical part at the University of Vienna. Since December 2017, I am working on my doctoral thesis at Vienna University of Technology in the research division of Macromolecular Chemistry. In Germany, I was a student representative and a member of the Jungchemikerforum Jena. I visited several conferences for chemistry student representatives and JCF spring symposia to support the networking of chemistry students in the German-speaking area. It is a great joy to share my experiences and work together with other young chemists throughout Austria.

Name: Lukas Magenheim
Currently, I pursue my master‘s degree in Technical Chemistry at Vienna University of Technology while being employed part-time. In addition to his or hers expertise, the chemist of today ideally brings along a variety of soft skills and thinks outside the box. The Young Chemist Network is the ideal platform for ongoing chemists in terms of professional discourses or the acquisition of new abilities in a relaxed and friendly environment.
