Three New Distinguished Retired Researchers at the University of Mannheim

Starting this fall, Prof. Dr. Ursula Wolf, Prof. Dr. Rosemarie Tracy and Prof. Dr. Jochen Taupitz will continue their research and teaching activities at the University of Mannheim as distinguished retired researchers.


The University of Mannheim has granted three new professorships for distinguished retired researchers. “I am very pleased that Ursula Wolf, Rosemarie Tracy und Jochen Taupitz will stay at the University of Mannheim this fall beyond their age of retirement. All three of them are outstanding researchers,” says Prof. Dr. Edgar Erdfelder, Vice President for Research at the University of Mannheim. “They have all made a name for themselves with renowned publications in their respective fields. The professorships for distinguished retired researchers provide an excellent opportunity for the university to continue to benefit from their vast experience and expertise.” Prof. Wolf has left his mark in the field of ethics, in particular animal ethics. Prof. Tracy has paved the way in research on multilingualism and her findings are today applied in kindergartens and schools. As Prof. Taupitz is an expert in the field of medical ethics, his advice is highly sought after in numerous committees. Moreover, he was a member of the National Ethics Council.
