Structure

The Johanna-Mestorf-Academy joins expertise from a wide range of disciplines, as represented by 16 institutes from five CAU Faculties, the Schloss Gottorf Archaeological State Museum, and the Center of Baltic and Scnadinavian Archaeology (ZBSA).
Currently the staff of the JMA consists of 25 Principal Investigators, an additional 22 Investigators, 14 scientists and a substantial number of non-scientific members of the participating institutes, three Junior Professors, a Scientific Coordinator, and three postdoctoral fellows. The School’s organisational structure ensures cross-institutional and autonomous decisions while being fully embedded within the existing university structures.
