In the list below you find the jobs of my former diploma students. ("Diploma" is the most common university degree in Germany. Typically, a student gets it after five years of study.) Before the first semicolon the subject of study, the minor, and the year of final examination are given. In case of an additional doctor degree (Dr.) also some information on this is provided. Between the two semicolons the occupations are listed in chronological order. Sometimes a statement of the exstudent follows after the second semicolon.

I was assistant professor at the University of Bielefeld until 1994. Then I moved to
Jena, on a full professorship in Applied Mathematics. Some of the Bielefeld students
finished their studies only in 1995. **The list is a snapshot in August/September
1999.** It will not be updated regularly.
